Commodore will be noisy muscle car

Commodore will be noisy muscle carHolden’s final update for the locally-built Commodore has now been revealed in the form of the VFII, which will take the Aussie Commodore to its grave in 2017.

For its last hurrah, all VFII variants with eight-cylinder engines now get the 6.2 litre unit found in HSV models, packing 304kW and 570Nm.

But General Motors has reversed a decision to send more than 100 powertrain engineering and development jobs overseas, announcing on Saturday night the jobs will stay in Australia.

“We should be really proud of that. The reason we’ve been able to retain those people is because of the talent of the team that’s based here,” Mr Bernhard said.

The Commodore gallery at Holden’s Port Melbourne headquarters is open to the public and includes the original VB Commodore, the first Holden racing team and Bathurst-winning 1990 VL Commodore and the first VE Commodore.

Other notable cars include the armoured VQ Caprice used by former PM Paul Keating in 1990 and a model badged as a Chevrolet Caprice that was used by the US police.
