Yes. That's stock.

Reminds me of a WRX. But it's strange because it looks like a Pontiac g8.

Yes, but Holden was in charge of the G8's production AFAIK. According to Wikipedia, It's just a facelifted Holden VE Commodore... I know Holden is a GM company so I'm not surprised in the similarities.

What makes me really want one is it comes from the factory with this "Bi-modal" exhaust. It's quiet on demand. When you wanna run it like it should be run hit the "Bi-modal" button and the Wortec Exhaust shines through with the heavy V8 choir.

Whats even better is the Bathurst edition (Vauxhall VXR8 Bathurst) can scare an M5 driver with almost identical times and acceleration. At essentially half the price.

Wow, it sounds basically like factory cutouts. That is such an awesome car. I want to visit there just to see one in person. I used think the G8 was pretty nice until I see what we should've had.
