  1. Holden Monaro GTS 327

The late ‘60s brought the muscle car war from Detroit to Australia. So, the Holden engineers decided to present their muscle car, equipping it with a bigger engine and upgraded components. And in 1968, the Holden Monaro GTS 327 was born. It was the first Australian two-door muscle car ever.

This car looked and sounded like a proper muscle car coupe. It featured a two-door Monaro body with bigger wheels and a graphics package. Also, it had a sportier interior and a Chevrolet 327 V8 engine under the hood. The V8 produced 250 HP which was more than enough for an exciting performance.

Immediately, Holden pitted their new Monaro muscle car against the Falcon GT in Australian touring car races. The GTS 327 won the 1968 Bathurst race, which was the first Holden victory on that track.

  1. TVR Cerbera

The Cerbera was one of the best affordable sports/muscle cars on the British market in 1996. They designed it as a two-seater coupe with a V8 engine up front, so it was a cross between a classic coupe and a muscle car.

The design was retro-futuristic with a long hood and aggressive silhouette. Today, even at over 22 years, this car still looks great. The best engine option was TVR’s own 4.7-liter V6 engine with the interesting “Red Rose” performance pack. It delivered 440 HP and an exhilarating performance.

  1. Toyota Century

The Century was a hand-built, limited production and highly formal limousine Toyota designed for the Japanese royal family and for high-ranking Yakuza members. They introduced the first Toyota Century in 1967. It stayed in production for 30 years with minimal changes to its technical layout and design. They produced it only as an RHD model, selling it in Japan and a few select Asian markets.

The first generation of the Toyota Century was powered by a 3.0-liter V8 engine delivering 170 HP. The interior was full of the finest leather, wood and chrome trim. Also, each car came standard with climate control, which was an advanced option for the period. The ride was extremely comfortable and quiet. In fact, the Century cruised effortlessly, even on the roughest terrain.
