Holden Commodore VF Calais - today's tempter

Luxo flagship

They say always keep your best to last and Holden certainly did with the VF Commodore, the last Australian made Holden to wear the storied badge.

After that it was all downhill for the General in Australia.

The VF was a fitting swan-song for GMH that began in 1978. Initially buyers were sceptical about the Commodore. However, their attitudes changed in the early 1980s and the Commodore, which spanned 39 years, became their most successful model.

Its Bathurst success and special performance models by HDT and HSV added to its reputation.

Here we have a 2014 Calais-V, the luxo model flagship. And while it boasts the interior comfort and features that come with that badge, it also knocks out 300 kilowatts and rides on a sports suspension setup and 20" wheels.

It has covered 116,350 km and is offered from Queensland at $35,000.
