UPTO $20,000! CUSTOM-MADE: The flash blue interior. A DAZZLING blue Mon- aro is being rushed to Victoria to star at the 2009 Melbourne Motor Show. The hand-built supercar is the latest extreme machine to join the show lineup, which now also includes wicked Sucker Punch Sallys motorcycles from the US. But the Monaro is a car with a difference, right down to its name, The Monaro from HAL. Every panel on the car has been tweaked and it is fitted with a 427 Corvette engine and a full custom interior. And there is the one-off blue paintwork. The car is a joint venture between one-time supercar hero Paul Halstead, who was the Australia importer for DeToma- so cars and created the locally- built Giacattolo, and Autotek chief Bob Roman. ‘‘It’s a one-off.Wetook a brand- new Monaro and did something very special,’’ Roman says. ‘‘It has been totally stripped and then re-sculpted to Paul Halstead’s vision.’’ The car was built in Castle- maine and finished this week in time for a first public appearance at the motor show. It will also be the key to a reader contest in next week’s edition of the Cars- guide. But, even more, it reflects the depth of Australian motoring expertise and that is something Halstead and Roman will be pushing with anewjoint venture between Autotek and ADAPS to provide automotive engineers and project managers to the industry. It’s a new contract plan which is in its infancy but which can be used for cars like the Monaro, and more. ‘‘Concept cars are the traffic magnets and the heart-and-soul of every motor show,’’ Roman says. The Monaro has wild flared guards, a deep jutting nose and an aero diffuser under the rear bumper. It also has a full custom interior and upgraded Corvette- style mechanics.‘‘It’s street legal but race ready,’’ Roman says. ‘‘And it’s all steel. There is no plastic or fibreglass, the car is completely real.’’ Roman says the car cost around $250,000 to build. The Monaro from HAL is actually the latest in a string of wild one-off cars created by Roman, from a Hillier Falcon coupe to the gullwing Raptor ute and a Commodore ute known simply as The Beast. But there is more tocomefrom the Autotek-ADAPS, in time for the next Melbourne Motor Show in 2011. ‘‘We’re working on something even more radical. It is a rear- mid engined supercar. But that’s something for the future,’’ Ro- man says. The Melbourne Motor Show opens at 5pm on Friday, Febru- ary 27 at the Melbourne Exhibi- tion Centre. It runs from 10am-10pm each day until Sunday, March 8. The final day of the show is Monday, March 9 whenit is open from 10am-6pm.
