This is the Holden VF Commodore SS V Concept

Article by Christian A., on February 19, 2013

Holden, the Australian division of General Motors, is offering its most detailed hint yet of the upcoming Chevrolet SS performance sedan. It’s been said that the Holden VF SS V concept, which is based on the standard VF Commodore, will closely preview the 2014 Chevrolet SS that is expected to make its debut in the weekend.

The automaker revealed that the 2014 Chevrolet SS will be rear-wheel-drive. It is powered by an eight-cylinder engine and it will be equipped with a chassis taken from Holden’s parts bin. Chevrolet has unveiled its NASCAR racer that provides us with glimpses of the styling that will be given to the production car.

However, this Commodore-based Holden VF SS V concept will probably offer an even clearer idea of what to expect from the latest performance sedan to come to the U.S. The Holden VF SS V displays the conventional styling for the square-edged sedan that’s anticipated from the Chevrolet SS.

This model features big projector headlights, a small black grille, with a bigger lower grille opening located between foglights and LED running lights. The front fenders have imitation vents on the front fenders. Meanwhile, the doors are flat except for a tiny crease located on the bottom edge. The decklid narrows and comes with a small spoiler.

Under the bumper, four exhaust tips are accommodated inside a black diffuser. The cabin has been given a trim that appears to be carbonfiber.

It also uses chrome, suede, and perforated leather. The major specifications that come from the show car include a set of 20-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, a touchscreen interface that looks like the Chevrolet MyLink system, LED running lights, an electric parking brake, and a group of active safety technology features that includes park-assist, lane departure warning, a head-up display, blind-spot warning, and forward collision alert.

Plenty of these features would probably be offered in the 2014 Chevrolet SS as an option. With regards to power, it’s uncertain yet if the Chevrolet SS will use the new LT1 6.2-liter V-8 that comes from the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, or of it will be equipped with the older 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 from models such as the Camaro SS.
