Holden has released full details of its Craig Lowndes SS V Special Edition Commodore with pricing from $57,990 (+ORC).

HOLDEN RELEASED minor details about its limited-edition Craig Lowndes SS V Special Edition Commodore in September, and has now revealed the car in full. Just 233 units are available and Holden says around 50% of them already have names against them – customer deliveries are expected to begin at the end of this month.

The Craig Lowndes SS V Special Edition Commodore is priced from $57,990 (+ORC) for the manual and from $60,190 (+ORC) for the automatic model.

Intended to celebrate Lowndes’ 20th anniversary in Australian motorsport and V8 Supercars, Holden’s Director of Sales, said “After 20 years of Craig Lowndes breaking records and claiming victories – and with so many of those moments coming behind the wheel of a Commodore – it’s only fitting that Holden honours that relationship with the Craig Lowndes SS V Special Edition Commodore”.

“This race-inspired Craig Lowndes SS V Special Edition Commodore has been created by our talented Holden engineers and designers with Craig’s input and approval.  It is a rolling testament to a man whose success and character has cemented his name into Australian motorsport history,” he said.

Holden has taken the recently updated 2015 SS V Redline as the starting point for the Craig Lowndes Special Edition. It’s got four-piston Brembo brakes fitted front and rear, paddle-shifts and upgraded suspension bushes. New 20-inch black alloy wheels round out the mechanical changes.
