The SS V-Series Special Edition sedan, Sportwagon and Ute will achieve immediate attention with styling treatments even more aggressive than Holden's established performance hero models.
For motorists seeking great value, International sedan and Sportwagon models will deliver $7,500 of extra features (based on recommended retail price of extra features) including leather seat trim and 18 inch alloy wheels.
Holden Director of Marketing Philip Brook said the two offerings highlighted the different ways in which Holden special editions stimulated demand in Australia's best-selling range.
"These vehicles cater to motorists at both ends of the Commodore-buying spectrum - those looking for great value and those looking for striking performance looks," Brook said.
"SS V-Series has always been about sports performance and ultimate road presence. Now we've dialled it up even further.
"The International edition is even better value when you combine extra features with the advanced 3.0 litre direct injection engine and 6-speed automatic transmission."
The SS V-Series Special Edition will boast a new aggressive twin nostril front fascia with unique lower splitter and twin letter-box hood scoops. The sedan variant will feature a decklid spoiler and chrome highlights.
On sale from November, the SS V-Series Special Edition will be available in three colours – Phantom black, Red Hot and Voodoo blue.
The Recommended Retail Prices (RRP), not including dealer delivery or Government charges, for the three SS V-Series Special Edition packs are carryover from the standard SS V-Series models and are as follows:
VE Ute SS V-Series Special Edition (man) $47,490 RRP
VE Commodore sedan SS V-Series Special Edition (man) $55,290 RRP
VE Sportwagon SS V-Series Special Edition (man) $57,290 RRP
Six-speed automatic transmission +$2,000 RRP
The SS V-Series Special Edition Ute will make its debut at this year's Deni Ute Muster which starts on Friday 2 October.
"Holden has sponsored the Deni Ute Muster for 11 consecutive years and its popularity continues to grow," Brook said.
"The event that attracts the country's most passionate Ute enthusiasts is the perfect place to launch this special edition Ute."
The new International offers an impressive level of standard features, five star safety and the performance and refinement of the all new 3.0 litre Spark Ignition Direct Injection V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. The new powertrain offers fuel efficiency that is better than some major four cylinder competitors.
In addition to Omega, the Special Edition Commodore International includes:
18 inch alloy wheels (4)
Berlina front grille

Leather wrapped steering wheel
