Known for its radical and flamboyant display of cars, it is odd then for an almost standard car to appear among the ranks of SEMA - and not at all appear out of place.
Aside from the custom orange paint - which closely resembles the Australian domestic Ignition colour - the car is mostly standard. The bright orange interior, while new to the American public, is commonplace in Australian SS-V models.
Even the 20-inch wheels which are unique to the Pontiac G8 SEMA car in the US are nothing more than the standard VE HSV wheels.
The 270kW V8 engine, six-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel independent suspension, ABS and traction control are all standard equipment as well.
For a SEMA-worthy show car to be derived from nothing more than a custom paint scheme coupled with features the Australian market have had access to for over a year is something Holden should be proud of.
