Limited edition V8 Commodores next year
Holden enthusiasts can begin forming a queue for eagerly anticipated limited edition V8 models that will see the fifth-generation Commodore sign-off with a performance flourish in 2017.
Holden Australia has launched a microsite (http://www.holden.com.au/cars/commodore/limited-edition) that teases the first information about three limited edition Commodore performance models that will be available next year.
There will be special edition models developed from the 6.2-litre LS3-powered SS-V Redline sedan, Calais V sedan and SS-V Redline ute models in a move that covers the V8 sports sedan, sports luxury and performance ute categories.

No details of vehicle specification, production volume or pricing have been announced. Holden says specification and build details for the limited edition cars will be released on January 19.
Enthusiasts and collectors eager to secure one of the V8 limited edition cars can register their interest via the microsite.
Kiwi enthusiasts will have a similar opportunity with Holden New Zealand securing an allocation of the three limited edition cars.
The current VF II Commodore is scheduled to remain in production at Holden’s Elizabeth plant in Adelaide till October 2017.
Holden then closes its Australian manufacturing operation and will launch all-new German-built Commodore five-door Liftback and Sportwagon models in early 2018 with a 230kW V6 engine and all-wheel-drive confirmed as the top-performing version.
