Australia continues to punish us for the poor box office performance of Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles by debuting the new Redline hi-po Commodore trim and a wild-looking SV R8 Maloo Limited Edition ute. Crikey.

For just $2,300 on top of the money you put down for one of the many Commodore SS-V variants (Ute, Sportwagon, Calais, Sedan), Holden will throw in larger Brembo brakes, low-profile performance tires wrapped around new alloy wheels, and a revised sport suspension. And no, you won't get a Saturn.

If that's not enough for you, the Holden Special Vehicles arm of GM's Aussie brand will offer a special edition of the HSV Maloo R8 designed to commemorate 20 years of the HSV Maloo Ute. The obvious upgrades are limited to the wild body kit, 20-inch black alloy wheels, and a new exhaust. Inside, they've added in all the electronics they've got including a blind zone alert, rear park assist, and SAT nav.

Maybe we should have taken Yahoo Serious more seriously.

Dear Raptor Jebus.

Can you make Kevin Rudd piss off Barack Obama so much that Australia gets invaded?

They can't have koalas, roos, the didgeridoo, stunningly beautiful women and cars this awesome.

Hell if you do that I'll join the army just to get transferred to the American Republic of Australia.

Please?
