The VE Holden Commodore was General Motors Holden’s billion dollar baby and the fourth and final generation of Commodore ever produced in Australia.

Released in July of 2006, the VE succeeded the VZ Commodore, and stayed in production until it was replaced the VF Commodore, which was released in June 2013.

Perhaps even more shocking than the absurd amount of money the VE cost to develop however is the sheer amount of kilometres covered in the VE’s development stage – roughly 3.4 million kilometres.

There were three engine choices made available with the VE; a 3.0lt and 3.6lt V6 and a 6.0lt Chevrolet sourced LS1 V8. (Of course the HSV cars went bigger, with 6.2 and 7.0lt.)

The shove from these powertrains was sent to the VE’s rear wheels via a four, five or six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.

Customers could choose to have their VE Commodore in three different body styles; a four-door sedan, five-door wagon or a two-door ute.

This particular VE is a 2007 SS four-door sedan and comes equipped with the thumping LS1 V8 and automatic transmission.

According to the seller, this particular VE SS is a Brock HDT homage and includes genuine HDT MOMO wheels and HDT bonnet scoop.

The VE SS HDT is $20,999 and anyone interested in this contemporary interpretation of an Aussie classic can view the full listing here.
