This weekend GM is going to unveil the 2014 Chevy SS, but in the meantime Holden has unveiled the Commodore VF SS V show car, which is a preview of the SS.
The show car’s exterior gets a Custom Kandy ‘Fantale’ metallic paint finish and a wide, dominant front fascia features traditional sports grille and a prominent lower air intake, both laced in custom gunmetal chrome. The lower front fascia also incorporates LED daylight running lamps and black bezel fog lamps, custom gunmetal chrome accents and outboard extensions integrated into sharp sports rockers. The show car also rides on twin five-spoke 20-inch wheels that are hand-machined in billet aluminium, custom finished in gloss black. The front Brembo brake calipers are also finished in gloss silver. The low, wide VF rear sports fascia features streamlined graphics with integrated tail lamps, an aluminium decklid, body-color bib spoiler and a custom gloss black finish sports valance incorporating licence plate and quad V8 exhausts.
Inside the show car features bolstered sports-profile seats that are tailored in jet-black leather and suede with perforated leather inserts and contrast stitching. There are reflective accents in galvano chrome and gloss black and new instrument graphics gleam in deep-cowled cluster housings beneath a stitched leather binnacle.
Holden hasn’t announced what will power the sports sedan, so we will have to wait until this weekend when Chevy takes the wraps off the SS.
