Craig Lowndes gets a SS V Special Edition Holden Commodore

Article by Christian A., on September 17, 2014

Holden has just unveiled the special edition of the Commodore, a vehicle that pays tribute to Australia’s one and only Craig Lowndes. If you don’t live in Australia and you are not a big fan of V8 Supercars a.k.a. the Astralian Touring Car Championship, you’d better know that Lowndes made his debut in the racing world back in September 1994 when the 20-year-old rookie made his debut for Holden in a V8 Supercar at Sandown.

One month later he became a household name when he finished second in the well-known Bathrust 1000. After 20 years, Holden decided to celebrate Lowndes with a SS V Special Edition Commodore based on Holden’s SS V Redline Commodore and featuring some unique specifications.

According to the press release, each car is hand finished and individually numbered by trained technicians and buyers will get a framed certificate of authenticity with build plate, a Red Bull Racing private function and tour hosted by Craig Lowndes himself as well as two General Admission tickets at customer’s local 2015 V8 Supercar race and Red Bull Racing pit tour.

There are not too many details, but we do know that the SS V Redline Commodore is powered by a 6.0-liter V8 petrol engine that pumps out 351 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. Looking at the photos, the vehicle will arrive with special stripes as well as special badges.

You will find more from your Holden dealers who are already taking pre-orders for the special edition vehicle. [source: Holden]
