Spotted in Australia was a lightly-camouflaged HSV Holden VF Commodore. This more or less confirms that Australia will be receiving a high-performance variant of the new Holden VF Commodore, which was unveiled a few months ago and is due to hit the Australia domestic market in June.
From the looks of things, the HSV VF Commodores were identified by the unique lower fascias and tail lights, and larger exhaust pipes. And while it wasn’t present, rear decklid mounting points suggest a rear spoiler will be present on the finished product, as well.
It may still be officially unconfirmed, but there’s a strong expectation of the HSV Commodore to feature a supercharged V8 engine, most likely the 6.2L LSA, found in the Cadillac CTS-V range, and Chevy Camaro ZL1. Such a powertrain would make the new HSV Commodore the most powerful car ever built in Australia. But will such a vehicle find itself in America as a higher-output Chevrolet SS? It certainly wouldn’t hurt.
