Holden, General Motors’ Australian subsidiary, unveiled another version of its new Commodore sedan that previews the upcoming Chevrolet SS performance sedan more than ever.
The SS V is a sportier version of the Commodore than the VF seen last weekend. The Chevrolet-badged version isn’t far away either; GM will debut the car on Saturday, February 16 during the Daytona 500.
In the Aussie car’s case, the Commodore SS V gets a more aerodynamic body and a series of other modifications. Those include a smaller grille, a large lower mouth, a lower front bumper and side skirts. The car also gets black 20-inch wheels shod in performance rubber.
Buyers can expect sport seats trimmed in leather and Alcantara along with a flat-bottomed steering wheel and Alcantara accents on the doors.
Chevrolet’s SS will only be built in a limited production run, and it isn’t clear how the trim and styling will differ from the Australian car. Despite that, it should get the same 6.2-liter LT1 V8 shared with the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Output for that engine is still unofficial, but GM estimates at least 450 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque.
