Final limited edition Commodores to debut in January

Three limited edition Holden Commodores will break cover in January to mark the car's final journey.

Holden will roll out three limited edition Commodore VFII models in January, as the company prepares to farewell the Australian built version of the car.

An invitation to register interest will go live at this link from 4:00 PM today for what appears to be two sedans and a ute, with more details to be released to the public on January 19 next year.

The limited edition cars are set to be based on the top spec SS-V ute and sedan, as well as the Calais sedan. The cars are likely to be limited in number and identified via a special build plate, and are set to gain more performance as well.

Even though the 304kW SS-V is already very well equipped, it's been suggested that more go-fast and styling parts from the Commodore-based Chevrolet SS will be added to the sedan and ute.

Another 1000 SSs were ordered by General Motors earlier this year for export to the United States, but that car will also cease to exist come November 2017.

Reports suggest the limited Calais may well be called the Director, in honour of Peter Brock's stillborn HDT model of 1987 that saw the racing great's empire collapse after a falling-out over an under-bonnet box called the Energy Polariser and Brock's loose respect for ADRs. 

Outside of the website invitation, Holden has already written to a number of its best customers, inviting them to order one of the last of the line rear-drive, Australian-made Commodores.

Holden shuts down its Commodore production line in Adelaide around November 24 next year. It recently closed its V6 engine plant in Victoria, and shuttered its Cruze line in November.

Ford closed its Falcon and Territory line in November, while Toyota will cease local production of the Camry late in November 2017.
