Retro looks, modern thrills

The VE Holden commodore is the first iteration of the fourth and final generation of one of Australia’s greatest automotive monikers.

Released in July 2006, the VE replaced the outgoing VZ Commodore, and stayed in production until May 2013.

The VE took seven years to develop and cost Holden approximately $1 billion dollars, and what’s even crazier than the development price tag is the amount of kilometres that engineers covered when testing – approximately 3.4 million kilometres.

Power came from a range of engines that included a 3.0lt and 3.6lt V6 and a 6.0lt V8, and these donks sent power to the VEs rear wheels via a six-speed manual or a four, five, or six-speed automatic transmission.

Body styles that customers could have their VE Commodore in comprised a four-door sedan, five-door or a two-door ute.

This particular VE Commodore has been transformed by HDT into a limited edition VH Retro homage, and is build number 7 of just 500 made in total.

According to the seller, the HDT has travelled an original 82,213 kilometres from new and is an unmolested, two owner car with a full service history.

The VE HDT is $35,000 and anyone interested in this ace Aussie muscle car can view the full listing here
