Anthony Fera was quick to get his phone camera rolling when he spotted a convoy of the new Holden VF Commodores in Wollongong yesterday.

"I was standing at the top of Crown St Mall in Wollongong waiting to cross the lights when I spotted a new black car that stood out from behind the bus," Fera says.

"First I noticed the new the new slot vent behind the front wheel which made it look like a Jaguar. Then i noticed some more similar cars at the back of the bus and thought I'd better grab some video --  this is a convoy of new VF Commodores.

"This all happened in a few seconds but as a HSV owner I was aware of the new VF look and know the cars are out and about testing."

Fera says he is impressed with the new look of the VF. "It's more upmarket and does stand out on the road. I know there has been some criticism that it looks like too much like the VE -- but really, you still want a Holden to look like a Holden," he says.

Anthony's sighting comes nearly a month ahead of the VF's June official launch, and the Sedan, Sportswagon, and Ute body styles will arrive simultaneously for the first time since the VZ model in 2004.

The VF represents a significant restyle to the historic Commodore nameplate, with only the doors, roof and glasshouse carrying over from the current VE.

An all-new interior also features, with Auto Park Assist standard on all models, and features like head-up display, blind spot monitor, forward collision alert and lane departure warning will be available for the first time.

Full details and pricing of the new VF range will be announced at the start of June.
