Holden has offered customers an extra special touch as it begins to build the final assortment of VF Commodore Series II. Previously, we reported the Australian subsidiary would let customers reserve their desired build number for the Commodore Motorsport, Director and Magnum editions.
In 15 minutes, half of the build numbers were reserved.
That’s according to a new statement from Holden, which opened the online database to reserve build numbers for the three final editions VF Commodores on May 3. Those customers who have not reserved a build number will be assigned one at random if they do not choose to participate by May 10. You can bet significant numbers such as 0001 have already been taken.
“One minute before the Special Edition build number selection website went live we had over 1,000 people waiting for it to open and three hours later almost 80% of numbers for sold cars had been claimed,” Holden’s CRM Manager, Rich Wright, said.
“We’ve seen some definite trends in number popularity. For example, all of the first 200 and last 100 Motorsport Edition numbers have gone as well as all double and triple digits like 55 or 555.”
However, the special touch isn’t being reserved for only special edition buyers. Holden announced every single 2017 VF Commodore Series II will be photographed on the assembly line for customers as a final keepsake of Holden manufacturing and the final, locally assembled Commodore.
The photos will be provided to the new owner at the point of sale when taking delivery of the car.
Holden will cease manufacturing operations this coming October, marking the end of decades of Australian production.
