News is coming in from Australia that Holden Special Vehicles division (HSV) is testing a special variant of the upcoming VF Commodore equipped with a supercharged V8 engine. Nobody is confessing outright, but the writing is on the wall that it’s more than likely the 6.2L, 580-horsepower supercharged LSA engine found in America’s Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, as the Camaro and Holden Commodore both share the Zeta platform.
This could very well mean that the Chevrolet SS — the Commodore’s left-hand-drive export to America — will be graced with the same treatment: four doors and 580 horsepower. Sounds monstrous. Sounds wonderful.
