Car reviews - Holden - Monaro - CV8 coupe
9 Jul 2002
MONARO employs Commodore's familar hooded binnacle dashboard, with a number of modifications aimed at personalising the two-door's interior. Most obviously, instead of four-door cars' plastic or immitation woodgrain trim, a "piano black" insert surrounds the instrument and centre console, while CV6 models feature a "silver bullet" finish. Instrument fascia colours match the vehicle's exterior paint, of which there are seven - Red Hot (solid red), Hothouse (metallic green), Devil (yellow), Quicksilver (metallic silver), Delft (metallic mid blue), Flame (solid orange) and Phantom (metallic black). Combined with four choices of coloured leather (black, Red Hot, Cobalt and Flame), that means 12 combinations of body and interior colour. All Monaros feature a leather-wrapped steering wheel, gearknob and shift surround, seats and door trims.
