Craig Lowndes gets first Craig Lowndes Special Edition Commodore
V8 Supercar driver, Craig Lowndes has taken possession of his very own, er, Craig Lowndes Special Edition Commodore’ with Holden saying most of the limited-to-233 cars have names against them.
INTENDED TO celebrate his 20 years in motorsport, the Craig Lowndes Special Edition Commodore is based on the Commodore SS-V Redline and hand finished at the Holden Enhancement Centre. Lowndes’ own car is build number 001. On-sale for just five weeks, Holden says almost all of the cars have names against them.
When given the keys to his car, Lowndes said: “It’s been a few months since I was down in Melbourne working with Holden on the car and to finally see it here, with my build number, is really exciting. It has been a great privilege to have my name on the car and I can’t wait to put it through its paces,” said Lowndes.
Holden Executive Director of Sales, Peter Keley, said the car is a fitting tribute to Lowndes’ career. “We have committed to building 233 of the Craig Lowndes Special Edition Commodore and have sold most of them already. With V8 Supercar tickets, pit tours and invites to a Red Bull Racing private function included, this is more than just a car, it is an experience.” Mr. Keley said.
“It’s great to see Craig in the car and it’s been an exciting project to create this special edition in his honour. It’s the least he deserves after such a long and illustrious career.”
