Holden will hit the streets with two new special edition
Commodore models delivering very different approaches to Australia’s best-selling car range.
The Commodore SS V-Series Special Edition sedan, Sportwagon and Ute will achieve immediate attention
with styling treatments even more aggressive than Holden’s established performance models.
For motorists seeking great value, International sedan and Sportwagon models will deliver $7,500 of
extra features (based on manufacturer's list price of extra features) including leather seat trim and 18
inch alloy wheels.
Holden Director of Marketing Philip Brook said the two offerings highlighted the different ways in
which Holden special editions stimulated demand in Australia’s best-selling range.
“These vehicles cater to motorists at both ends of the Commodore-buying spectrum - those looking
for great value and those looking for striking performance looks,” Brook said.
“SS V-Series has always been about sports performance and ultimate road presence. Now we’ve
dialled it up even further.”
“The International edition is even better value when you combine extra features with the advanced
3.0 litre direct injection engine and 6-speed automatic transmission.”
SS V-Series Special Edition Sedan, Sportwagon and Ute
The SS V-Series Special Edition will boast a new aggressive twin nostril front fascia (similar to
Holden's intended export car, the Pontiac G8 GXP) with unique lower splitter and twin letter-box bonnet
scoops. The sedan variant will feature a boot lid spoiler and chrome highlights.
On sale from November, the SS V-Series Special Edition will be available in three colours – Phantom
black, Red Hot and Voodoo blue.
The manufacturer's list prices (MLP), excluding dealer delivery or state/territory government charges,
for the three SS V-Series Special Edition packs are carryover from the standard SS V-Series models and
are as follows:
· VE Ute SS V-Series Special Edition (manual) $47,490
· VE Commodore sedan SS V-Series Special Edition (manual) $55,290
· VE Sportwagon SS V-Series Special Edition (manual) $57,290
· Six-speed automatic transmission + $2,000
The SS V-Series Special Edition Ute will make its debut at this year’s Deni Ute Muster which starts on
Friday 2nd October in Deniliquin, NSW.
“Holden has sponsored the Deni Ute Muster for 11 consecutive years and its popularity continues to
grow,” Brook said.
“The event that attracts the country’s most passionate Ute enthusiasts is the perfect place to launch
this special edition Ute.”
Special Edition International Sedan and Sportwagon
The new International offers an impressive level of standard features, five star safety and the
performance and refinement of the all new 3.0 litre Spark Ignition Direct Injection V6 engine and six-speed
automatic transmission. The new powertrain offers fuel efficiency that is better than some major four
