Holden’s Craig Lowndes Special Edition Commodore SSV!
Holden is celebrating Craig Lowndes 20 years of racing in V8 Supercars with a unique Special Edition of the Commodore SS V sedan.
The first of the 233 ‘Craig Lowndes Edition’ SSVs was recently delivered, and more than half are already spoken for, but there are still a small number available for buyers wanting to own a limited version with inspiration from one of Australia’s motor racing legends.
The Craig Lowndes Edition is based on Holden‘s MY15 Commodore SS-V Redline, but with a few Craig-inspired additions, including unique 20″ alloy wheels wrapped in 245 (front) and massive 275 (rear) Bridgestone Potenza tyres plus racing inspired Brembo 4-piston brakes!
As well as the handling/braking upgrades, the Limited edition gets a ‘Red Hot’ engine cover, ‘V8 Power’ decals on the bonnet, a black roof, grill surrounds & fender vents, black daytime running light & window surrounds, plus more black decals down the side of the car and a black spoiler.
The cosmetic changes continue into the cabin with the unique floor mats, embroidered dash pad and graphic sill plates. Plus the individually numbered build plate!
The bonuses don’t stop with the car as well as all 233 owners will also receive a framed certificate of authenticity with a build plate, access to a Red Bull Racing private function and tour with Craig plus 2 tickets to their local V8 Supercar round in 2015 including a pit tour!
All 233 examples are fitted with Holden‘s 6.0L V8 Engine which produces 270kW & 530Nm of torque(in manual form, 260kW & 517Nm in automatic). They are all painted in Heron White or Red Hot and will be finished by hand at the Holden Enhancement Centre in South Australia.
