GTO and Monaro VXR

Got a question,does anyone know if the GTO and Monaro VXR are the exact same or are they any different at all? Including transmission? and everything else besides body cause I know there's a difference there.

The plain VXR seems pretty similar to what we have. They added a supercharger to the VXR500. Here are a few links and some quotes.

Holden Monaro - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Vauxhall VXR - Monaro Specifications

Hope that helps,

HSV.


"Vauxhall Monaro

The Monaro was also sold in the United Kingdom as the Vauxhall Monaro where it won Top Gear's best muscle car award.
To the delight of British motorists, Vauxhall offered the Monaro buyer a special treat prior to the discontinuation of the model: the VXR 500. A Harrop supercharger was installed onto the standard GM 6.0 LS2 engine by Vauxhall dealer Greens of Rainham in conjunction with tuning firm Wortec, bumping up power to 500 bhp (373 kW) and bumping up torque as well to 500 lbfft (677 Nm). In addition to this, a shorter gear linkage was added to enable quicker shifts. The resultant acceleration times were impressive at 4.8 seconds from rest to 62 mph (100 km/h).[9]
With the end of production, Vauxhall opted to replace the Monaro in 2007 with a version of the HSV Clubsport R8 4-door sedan. The new model sports sedan is simply referred to as the Vauxhall VXR8."
