Holden Commodore/SLE/Calais VB-VL & VL Turbo market review 2020

So many ‘Wanted’ ads for VL Turbos, so few genuine cars in the market and those that do appear seem to need plentiful work or are at untenable prices. Then again, if someone is prepared to pay $90,000 for a truly superb Calais Turbo then why not ask it?

Basic SL Turbos, including the ex-Police cars that occasionally appear, will soon be consistently selling at more than $50,000 and greater incentives will emerge to develop fake Turbos.

Commodore and Calais V8s are also enjoying strong demand, led by the VKs and VLs. Top-class VLs now exceed $60,000 and authenticity is crucial to ongoing value growth.

SLE V8s offered in the mid-$30,000s may be in sub-standard condition are but are looking underpriced at present.

VK-VL V8 $39,430 [7]

VB-VH SL/E V8 $35,335 [6]

VL Turbo $38,000 [4]

VK-VL Calais V8 $58,295 [3]

VL Calais Turbo $60,000 [3]
