Before Holden manufacturing falls silent, Holden Special Vehicles has reportedly been working closely with General Motors for a very special sendoff edition for the Zeta-based, rear-wheel drive sport sedan.
We’ve been hearing the rumor for over a year now, with HSV supposedly working diligently to receive a handful of LS9 engines from Detroit to swap into one final swan song of Holden Commodore. Most recently, we reported HSV has been inundated with interest and waiting lists for an unconfirmed vehicle.
The report also states the cost will hover around $165,000 AUD for this LS9-powered HSV, making it fast, exclusive and expensive. Mumbling of a GTS-R nameplate returning seem likely, but the source states this vehicle will have a unique name all its own.
Nothing is concrete just yet, but we know both Holden and HSV will not let its beloved, locally-produced Commodore go quietly.
