Holden today announced that V8 Supercars driver James Courtney has been announced as the 2015 Holden Insignia VXR ambassador.
“It’s great to have James Courtney on board as an ambassador for the car. His expertise and experience gives Insignia VXR the credibility it deserves,” he said.
2010 V8 Supercars championship winner, James Courtney, took part in ice driving today with journalists and was very impressed with the all-wheel-drive Insignia VXR's performance on the Southern Hemisphere Proving Ground test track.
“Ice driving has been an awesome experience and I am really impressed with what the Insignia VXR is capable of doing” Courtney said.
“It’s an exciting and engaging drive experience with a great AWD system that provides fantastic traction and ensures all 239kW of power are delivered to the driven wheels.
“This a genuine performance mid-size sedan that combines power, an amazing amount of technology and stunning looks.”
The Insignia VXR is built in Germany, but is powered by an Australian built, 2.8-litre turbocharged V6 engine.
The Holden Insignia VXR forms part of a local Holden product onslaught. Holden plans to launch 24 new models over the next five years, making it one of the most aggressive launch programs ever conducted by the Australian manufacturer.
