Based on the Holden Commodore SS sport sedan, this is a modern-day El Camino. It makes 362 horsepower from a 6.0L V8 and puts the power through the rear wheels. There's room for a motorcycle helmet behind your seat and a couple of dirtbikes in back. Zero to 60 in 5.6 seconds, and a quarter-mile in 13.8 seconds. Unfortunately, it appears to only come with a six-speed auto.

EDIT: The Edmunds test made it sound auto-only, but Holden's website says you can get it with a six-speed manual as well.

The colors are "eye-catching," to say the least:
