GM Holden released pricing for the all-new VE Sportwagon at the Melbourne International Motor Show today, adding great value to its list of attractive features.
The 2008 VE Sportwagon range starts from as little as $37,790 # for Omega, with each of the seven models only $1,000 more than their VE sedan equivalent.
At $41,290, the new VE Sportwagon Berlina is an amazing $5,600 less than its VZ wagon equivalent whilst offering a range of engineering advances and safety features including Electronic Stability Program (ESP ® ) , Rear Park Assist and six airbags which are standard across the range.
Having more than doubled the model range from three in VZ to seven in VE, the new Sportwagon offers buyers more choice and more features to further enhance its appeal to both private and business customers.
GM Holden today marked the diamond anniversary of its first all Australian car by unveiling a stunning two-door performance thoroughbred called Coupe 60.
Coupe 60 celebrates the six decades since GM Holden built the 48-215 at its Fishermans Bend plant in Port Melbourne, Victoria, and provides a glimpse of Holden’s future directions in design, engineering and emerging engine technologies.
Exemplifying sports luxury, Coupe 60 is a pillarless concept car that explores the limits of Holden’s current rear-wheel drive capabilities, combining racing looks and technology into a road going sportscar experience.
Its sophisticated appearance is delivered through simple and powerful design, highlighted by the pillarless construction and V8 supercar inspired cockpit layout and side-exiting chambered exhaust system with billet alloy tips.
Holden will unveil the production version of the VE Sportwagon at the 2008 Melbourne International Motor Show, starting 29 February. A concept version of the new VE Sportwagon made its world debut at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney last October.
The 6.0L V8 Sportwagon SS backed Jack Daniel’s was created for V8 Supercar drivers Shane Price, Cameron McConville and enduro specialist Nathan Pretty.
VE Sportwagon will be available in the full range of VE Commodore variants including Omega, Berlina and Calais, plus the sporty SV6, SS and the range topping SS-V and Calais V models.
Holden announced that at the 2008 Melbourne Motor Show they will reveal a concept car to “knock everybody’s socks off”. Holden has also chosen the show to reveal the production version of its SportWagon, which was displayed in thinly disguised concept form at the 2007 Sydney motor show.
Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) has unveiled two new models, including a special commemorative ClubSport R8 as part of its 20th Anniversary celebrations at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney today.
The world premier of the new VE Commodore Sportwagon and the Motor Show debut of the new VE Ute range headline GM Holden’s stand at this year’s Australian International Motor Show. Holden’s display includes an impressive 22 vehicles, across several segments, representing one of the most comprehensive vehicle ranges in the Australian market today.
In the near future, Opel might sell a luxury European version of the Holden Commodore. The new model will come to replace the Omega that was discontinued in 2003 and will became the flagship of the Opel range.
