Holden has priorly stated it has a few tricks up its sleeve to send the VF Commodore out with a proper bang, as local manufacturing winds down at the end of 2017. The most recent news comes from Wheels, which reports the next special edition will wear the “Director” badge.
The original Director was born from Peter Brock and Holden Dealer Team, or HDT, in the VL and VK Commodores after a controversial win at the 1983 Bathurst. The return of the nameplate has stirred up quite a bit of emotion with fans of Brock, HDT and Holden itself.
Controversy aside, the original Director added a healthy dose of Calais luxury equipment, and the same is to be said about the upcoming VF Commodore Director. It’s rumored Magnetic Ride Control will grace the Director, a first for any Holden Commodore, and normally reserved for HSV variants.
A distinct rear wing and 20-inch wheels will help the VF Commodore Director stand apart, while “Director” badging and embroidery is said to be abundant inside and out.
The report states a $60,000 to $70,000 AUD price tag for the special edition, with the brand mulling only a few hundred to be produced.
