Holden's 230km/h U-2 Dragon support vehicle is an Aussie-built sedan

Australian forces support allied armies all over the world, but one particular piece of Australian machinery plays a critical role in guiding one of the world's oldest spy planes in safely — at over 230km/h. The U-2 Dragon is a jet-powered Lockheed spy plane that cruises at 70,000 feet above the earth, around double the cruising altitude of a QANTAS domestic plane.

Holden reports $210.6 million loss for 2009

Holden has revealed it suffered a $210.6 million net loss for 2009, a result which it blames on the loss of Pontiac exports to the North American market. Its investment in the Pontiac program accounted for the majority of one-off charges in 2009 totalling $223.4 million - without which Holden would have boasted a $12.8 million after-tax profit.

Bleak future for Pontiac G8 in the U.S.

While previous reports predicting the demise of the Commodore-based G8 sedan were denied by Pontiac, almost, new reports have emerged which paint a rather bleak future for the Australian export. Since the Pontiac G8 sedan was launch in the U.S., just 13,000 have found a home, while 11,000 more unsold G8's remain in Pontiac's inventory - representing a 283 day supply.
