2003 Holden Monaro CV8 V2 Series III - Purple Haze

Now for sale is this super rare 6 speed manual 2003 Holden Series III V2 Monaro CV8 in Purple Haze with only 57,370 km from new! Located in Kingsgrove, NSW.

A small band of Holden designers, working in secret, conspired to create a coupe from the stylish VT Commodore. Peter Hughes doodled several coupes early in the sedan’s development, noting that the new Commodore’s shape leant itself naturally to the two-door treatment.

Design boss Mike Simcoe felt the same. He created a realistic ‘tape’ drawing on his loungeroom wall then commissioned clay modeler Arthur Radziszewski to produce a scale model to ensure the proportions were right.

The concept was convincing enough for Simcoe. He just needed support within Holden to make the car a reality. Incoming GMH CEO Peter Hanenberger, former Holden suspension engineer and verifiable car guy, got straight behind it.

And with Ford Australia staged to unveil the revolutionary AU Falcon at the 1998 Sydney Motor Show, the boys at Holden whipped the covers off their creation just 15 minutes prior, upstaging the Broadmeadows crew with the svelte, beautiful Commodore Coupe.

The consensus amongst the press and public alike was resounding. This was a Monaro.

In unmarked rare to find Purple Haze paint and immaculate Anthracite leather trim, this super clean example features the all original pushrod all-American Generation III 5.7-litre V-8, producing 302 bhp at 5200 rpm and the 6-speed manual transmission.

The Anthracite leather trim with contrasting colour coded dash board is in perfect condition. The CV8 comes with all owners manuals, log books and a full service history plus two sets of keys. And the car is riding on excellent 235/40ZR-18 tyres mounted on the factory 18 x 8-in. 5-spoke alloy rims. Plus the Spacesaver spare in the boot.

Not only is this Monaro CV8 in totally original and unmolested condition it has also been professionally maintained to the highest standard.

There was never any doubt that this beautifully designed Coupe would become a modern muscle car worthy of the famous Monaro appellation. And we doubt that you will find a more worthy addition to any Holden collection than this rare Purple Haze low mileage CV8.
