Last Monaro auctioned for good cause


Bidding for the last of the current-generation Monaro coupe, auctioned online at, has reached $187,000.

That's three times as much as the price of a standard Holden CV8 Monaro but all proceeds will be donated to The Leukaemia Foundation.

The online auction began February 9, coinciding with the last Monaro's debut at the Melbourne International Motor Show and finished yesterday (Sunday, February 19).

The highest bidder, whose eBay user ID is ‘shelda0' and is identified as being from Emerald in Queensland, made the final bid at 11.59am. All bids were verified by third party listing agent GoingGone, which helps charities raise money on eBay.

The last Monaro has been painted with a custom color and modified by Holden's Design and Engineering departments. A 'Very Last Monaro' project team made various changes including special embossed wheels, leather seats and color accents.

The sale of the car will mark the end of Monaro domestic production in Elizabeth, South Australia.
