Redline Edition for Holden Commodore

12th September, 2010
Holden has put more performance polish on its sports
luxury V-Series badge with the launch of five stand-out Redline Editions.
The Redline Edition Calais V-Series and SS V-Series sedan, Sportwagon and Ute will take up top
positions in Holden’s updated VE Series II range, to be launched later this month.
Intended for enthusiast drivers, Redline Edition models offer high-level braking and sports handling
capabilities to match their powerful 6.0-litre V8 credentials.
Advanced chassis dynamics come courtesy of specialist Holden engineers, who developed a track-inspired
FE3 super sports suspension set-up* to complement the extra stopping power of four-piston Brembo high
performance front brakes.
The Redline Edition range is further distinguished by exclusive forged and polished 19-inch alloy
wheels, matched to low profile tyres.
Holden also raises the bar with the inclusion of full colour mapping satellite navigation and a rear
camera** as standard equipment in V-Series models, which feature the new multimedia touch screen
Holden-iQ system and smart interior treatments.
All Redline Editions are compatible with bio-ethanol, also known as E85, an emission-reducing ‘fuel of
the future’ that already powers V8 Supercars.
Holden Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales John Elsworth said the Redline Edition
introduced added excitement to the company’s high-feature luxury performance range.
“We know the performance enthusiasts who drive Holden sports vehicles enjoy the way the engine
performs with the exhilarating V8 engine performance of our sport models,” Mr Elsworth said.
“We know that their interest goes beyond straight-line power and torque though. They’re looking for
a satisfying overall driving experience with superior chassis dynamics.”
“With the Redline Edition, we set out to improve that experience for them, to provide the ultimate
sports ride by introducing features we know they’ll value the most - track-inspired handling for great
road connection and control combined with awesome stopping power.”
NOTE: * FE3 suspension exclusive to sedan.
**Rear camera – excludes Ute.
