Dubbed “Design Packs” that are available in numbered “stages”, they group accessories together for a single price on sports models only, including SV6, SS, SS V and SS V Redline.
A Stage One exterior package includes black front grille surrounds and fender vents for $625. A Stage Two pack, meanwhile, adds in addition to that included in the first stage, track stripes, alloy sports pedals, sports carpet mats, a sports engine cover and black lip spoiler for a more substantial $2045.
The most expensive pack, however, is Stage Three which groups all of the first two stages’ equipment with 20-inch forged alloy wheels – in midnight dark grey or machined-face gunmetal gloss – and 245/35R20 high performance tyres for $5050.
“We’ve enjoyed some great success with limited edition sports models like the G8-inspired Holden SS V-Series Special Edition,” argues Holden Marketing Manager Kristian Aquilina.
“Even though we’ve taken a more subtle and luxurious styling approach to VF Commodore sports models, we’ve created accessory options … for customers who really want to dial up the volume of their car’s appearance.”
Individual accessories optional on all sports models include track stripes in black or red ($440); three-piece “sports armour” kit that entails front-bumper protection moulding ($300); a black lip spoiler ($320); front grille surrounds in red or black ($535); alloy pedals ($230); and on V8 SS models, a black DRL surround ($180) and red sports engine cover ($350).
Other big-ticket items available across the Holden VF Commodore range include a roo bar ($1490) and towbar ($790).
