They’ve long been the butt of offensive and often unfair jokes, but Collingwood fans are now being spoilt rotten – first discounted dental, and now with the chance to make a mark with a limited edition Holden Commodore.
The Holden VF Commodore can now be enhanced with an option package, to commemorate the car maker’s sponsorship of the Collingwood Football Club.
Holden’s Australian product communications manager Kate Lonsdale said the launch of the Collingwood Edition Commodore targets the club’s loyal fan base and is available on any Heron White SV6, SS or SS V sedan.
Forget bumper stickers and flags sticking up out of windows, hardcore fans can now take their allegiance and dedication to the club, to an unprecedented level.
For $3500 a Commodore can be transformed into what’s being called a ‘Collingwoodore’, dressed to impress in the Pies monochromatic footy colours.
Collingwood’s chief executive Gary Pert said, “The limited edition factory enhanced VF Commodore, adorned with black and white stripes, Collingwood carpet floor mats and limited edition badging came to fruition following feedback from our members and supporters.”
The Collingwood Edition Commodore also features black 20” alloy wheels, a black spoiler and black mirrors, vents and grilles, and can be ordered from any Holden dealer.
No word if this will become Eddie McGuire’s new company car or whether Ford will counter with a Geelong Cats edition Falcon.
