    Probably because nobody in Europe wanted a V8 Opel Insignia!

    Do you really want to drive a V8 supercar on normal roads?

    Nothing under the skin is a production car

    Because they're not a ZB Commodore. The only similarity is the exterior sheet metal.

    They probably can but the only people that want a V8 are the people on this forum. Its not commercially viable.

    The V8 supecars have nothing in common with the road going vehicle and haven't been in many years. They are a full race chassis with only body panels in silhouette of the road car and matching grill. The ZB panels wouldn't even fit because the wheel base and track width are different.

    BTW. not everyone on this forum is V8 biased. I have both V6's and V8's :)

    Well.....maybe the dealers have got the hint....i've seen one VXR on the road and one in black outside the dealer as a demo this morning. I've disliked the car in general up until now, but I have to admit it looked pretty good in VXR form. They might sell a few more with that range leader out front. Though those inquiring may raise the odd eyebrow when they hear the 61K driveaway (SA). 'showroom thought bubble'...might go test drive that Stinger if im forking out that much....

    You might not notice them on the roads, they have a very generic style. You might even say BLAND.

    I saw one in a parking space that normally has a 2015 Audi. I didn't notice it. Seems like same headlights. On the road they could look like late model Mazdas or Audis (3 years ago).

    Saw a VXR (big holes in bumper under headlights) in Bathurst CBD over the weekend. Did not see any in the parking area at the circuit over 3 days.
    So they are still a rare and exclusive vehicle ……… could become a collectors dream-machine.

    Not really,

    I started seeing new Camrys on the roads around my area soon after they were launched and you could say that the Camry defined the genre of 'bland soulless white goods on wheels' lol

    Starting to see a few more on the road, mainly around the local airport area, my guess … rental cars. Still look generic, bland.
    I have seen a few Stingers, but they also are the same, look just like another KIA, but bigger.
    They just do not have the ‘presence’ or ‘character’ to identify them like a VF or FGX or Chrysler 300.
    Holden are hurting bad from local production cessation, and they have finally realised it. But it has taken an ex-Toyota CEO to point out, and admit the bleeding obvious. Their reputation, product, warranty issues, advertising, customer service are all on the nose. It was before, but customers bought Commodores because they were made in Australia.

    If the ZB shape was made in Australia, RWD with 4, V6 and V8 as a sedan, wagon and ute, would it bomb like the present offering.?

    Wouldn't make much of a ute, too small and would look weird. Was designed to be what it is.

    I got put off the zb firstly before I had even seen one and that was because they used the commodore name. After I had seen one I didn't particularly like the look of them. Front wheel drive v6, no ute, no thanks. They may well be good to drive but I'm sure a lot of other cars are. I will stick with my ve and vh, one day the ute will go but it is quite handy to have.
