Clive Palmer has visited Adelaide to announce the South Australian candidates for his Palmer United Party for the coming federal election.
Vince Scali will run for the seat of Adelaide.
The lead Senate candidate is James McDonald, who will be joined by former employee ombudsman Gary Collis and former Adelaide United player Kristian Rees.
Mr Palmer told reporters his party would make $8 billion extra available for South Australian health services, but he could not say how it would be paid for.
"Unfortunately we don't get access to the Treasury estimates because they won't give it to us. They only give it to the opposition and the government, so indeed the system is stacked against us," he said.
As the car industry deals with closure plans and cost struggles, Mr Palmer has put forward the idea that a super car plant should be established to let all the carmakers work together.
"Let's face it, all the car companies themselves have got substantial financial commitments to Australia. They don't want to close their plant - they'd rather keep it going and they'd rather have it operating," he said.
"If the Government's going to create an incentive it should be an incentive to bring these people together to create more wealth for the country and have long sustainability."
