It's been a long time coming – after 38 years in production and over three million cars sold, local production of the Holden Commodore will come to an end this year. But, the Commodore won't be quickly forgotten with three very special limited editions announced today, and we've driven them.
The 2017 Holden Commodore Motorsport will sit in a sedan body modelled on the SS-V Redline. The Director will also be a sedan, but modelled off the Calais V. The final special edition will be the Magnum, which was designed to offer performance above and beyond the SS-V Redline ute.
Kicking off the price range will be the Magnum, starting from $59,290 (plus on-road costs) for the six-speed manual, with the six-speed automatic an extra $2200. That's a $8300 premium over the SS-V Redline ute.
Next up is the Motorsport, which is priced from $61,790 (plus on-road costs) for the six-speed manual, and an extra $2200 for the six-speed automatic. That's a $7300 premium over the SS-V Redline manual.
Finally, the Director will only be available with a six-speed manual and is priced from $63,940 (plus on-road costs), which is $8000 above the Calais V V8.
