TG goes in search of Aussie muscle

But just as a pair of turbos chitter and choosh, and a pair of men applaud the dark blue saloon wheelspinning up the road at 100mph, the pieces of the puzzle fit together. The reason for the GTS being such a hero, the reason for the bullish advertising. It's because Australia's car culture walks its own beat. It might look recognisable, but there's something glorious about the way Australia consumes cars. People aren't ashamed to love cars here. They don't feel slightly apologetic for admitting to loving the antisociably noisy or the pointlessly fast. The whole continent is, very basically, just a bit more Top Gear.
