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.”

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.

· Leather appointed seat trim
· Leather wrapped steering wheel
· Bluetooth for compatible mobile phones
