Holden VF SSV Commodore

We had the opportunity to see the Holden VF Commodore S V show car revealed just before the official introduction of the Chevrolet SS which is expected to appear this week. This new performance sedan is 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 V Calais V a few days ago.

So that you know, the new model 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 also Auto Park Assist. The model embodies the same design sophistication, premium appointments and attention to detail just like in the case of the Calais V luxury sport concept. Designers have provided 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.

On the inside it has galvan-chrome, gloss back and perforated leather with accent stitching. The result is a premium-grade cabin detailed with motorsport-inspired touches including carbon fiber look cross-car appliqué, stitched leather instrument binnacle and sports profile leather steering wheel. The exterior of the car is also incredible and will make anyone turn their heads around. Its muscular design is enhanced with a bespoke paint job in brilliant metallic orange, contrasted against glossy black multi-spoke wheels. The preview offers perspective buyers an idea of what to expect when the VF sport luxury range makes its showroom debut. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have fitted the Holden VF Commodore SS V with twin five-spoke 20-inch wheels and to handle the extra power, they have provided the car with front Brembo brake calipers.
