Come late 2017, Holden manufacturing will fall silent for good, as the 2017 Holden VF Commodore Series II officially exits production. However, Holden has a few things up its sleeve to send the Aussie motoring icon out on a high note, as we have learned the 2017 VF Series II will feature not one, not two but three special editions to end local production.
The special editions will include a new Director edition, Motorsport edition and Commemorative edition.
Commodore Director Edition
The Director will revive a controversial nameplate from Holden and Holden Dealer Team’s past, most associated with the late, great Peter Brock. As for the vehicle itself, it is expected to feature “Director” spelled across the decklid and feature more luxurious appointments. Silver Brembo brakes, heated and cooled seats, Magnetic Ride Control and unique 20-inch wheels with a red band running around the diameter are said to be planned.
Commodore Motorsport Edition
The Motorsport edition is said to be what replaced what we once knew as the Bathurst edition. This special edition will feature slotted brake discs, heated and cooled memory seats, Magnetic Ride Control and a standard blackout package.
Commodore Commemorative Edition
Finally, the Commodore Commemorative edition will feature dozens of special attributes to create a unique, final send off edition for the VF Series II. This vehicle is still being held closely, and we do not know exactly what will be present design wise.
A select few new colors will join the VF Series II range, but no changes in engine output or overall engineering are planned. Furthermore, regular Commodore sport models will receive the blackout package standard, with chrome trim becoming a no-cost option.
The 2017 VF Commodore Series II will become available in February of 2017 after the 2016 model year wraps up in January of 2017.
