It's more Australian than a koala riding an emu while eating a lamington.
Performance utes are a uniquely Australian invention, not to be confused with their American 'pick-up' cousins.
Like all our locally-made beasties, they won't be around for too much longer, which is a crying shame, as there aren't too many better ways to have fun on four wheels.
Masses of power and torque, no weight over the back and rear-wheel drive means it's virtually impossible not to enjoy yourself.
But which of the local crop is fastest? Check out the video above to find out.
Quick disclaimer: it was originally meant to be XR6 Turbo vs base SS, but a mix-up at Holden meant we landed a Redline instead. As it turns out, it wouldn't have changed the result at all.
We'll have more video from our ute shoot in the coming weeks.
