High-end V8

Holden’s last run of Australian-made Commodores were something very special, reflecting a serious development budget and a commitment to meet high benchmarks.

In a feature on the VE-VF series, we noted: "Holden’s aims for VE had to be higher than for the previous series: in fact, with an obvious view to future US market sporting sedans, Holden bench-marked the VE against acknowledged European premiums such as BMW’s 5-series.

"Australia has always had reasonably high safety standards but VE had to be ready for every market on earth including the notorious US market. Systems such as stability control had to be designed-in as world-class from the outset."

This Calais Sportwagon features the corporate 6.2lt V8 and automatic transmission. Located on the Gold Coast, it’s with the Sharp Motor Group and is priced at $63,490.
