Holden has announced the VF Commodore SS V, which is expected to make its official debut this weekend. Unveiled as a precursor to the new VF Commodore sport luxury range, the new VF SS V show car applies a serious performance edge to the luxury hero concept Holden previewed in the VF Calais V earlier this week.
The new VF Commodore will introduce a range of technology firsts for an Australian car, including Reverse Traffic Alert, Head-up Display, Blind Spot Alert, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and Auto Park Assist when it arrives in Australian showrooms mid-year.
The VF Commodore sport luxury range is more refined than any car previously produced by Holden, embodying the same design sophistication, premium appointments and attention to detail as the Calais V luxury sport concept.
The SS V has a mature, new aerodynamic exterior design, which has been finished in eye-catching custom Fantale orange metallic paint specially created by Holden for the show car. There is also a quad-pipe exhaust, a set of 20” multi-spoke alloys, Brembo brakes and a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The interior boasts ice-blue ambient lighting, leather sports steering wheel, a new intrstrument panel and built-in Holden MyLink infotainment system coming with an 8” touchscreen display.
