Motoring.com.au seems to have discovered the makings of a Holden marketing campaign before it’s even been officially announced, having uncovered the makings of some sort of announcement timed for the July time frame surrounding the Holden VF Commodore-based Redline SSV Ute.
For starters, the SSV Ute has been photographed running around the one-and-only Nürburgring. And according to Motoring’s sources, it was driven by Mark Reuss, President of GM North America. Reuss also had a busy weekend driving the 2014 Corvette Stingray pace car around the Detroit Belle Isle road course during the Izod IndyCar Series Dual in Detroit, part of the Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix.
We’ll chalk this one up to a stretch, but Motoring states that this is all part of a marketing campaign to export the VF Ute to North America, thereby signaling the return of the Chevrolet El Camino, which would hypothetically be a spin-off the Chevy SS. If that’s the case, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
