Holden’s new VF Commodore, which was previewed by the VF Calais V showcar earlier in the week, has again shown off its upcoming form, this time in sported-up fashion. The US-bound Chevrolet SS Sports Sedan is due to be unveiled, and ahead of that comes the VF SS V, which has been amped up a little.

What’s on the VF SS V offers a different take than that earlier in the week; where the Calais V show vehicle emphasised luxury, the SS V offers a more performance-oriented outlook for the new Commodore. Leading the parade is an eye-catching custom Kandy ‘Fantale’ orange metallic paint specially created for the show car, contrasted against gloss black 20-inch twin five-spoke wheels.

Sport elements include front Brembo brake calipers done in gloss silver, projector headlamps with black bezels and a host of accent items finished in custom gunmetal chrome, these being the sports grille, lower air intake, vertical fender vents and window surrounds.

Inside, the SS V benefits from a sleek, new interior design layered with up-scale finishes of suede, galvano chrome, gloss black and perforated leather with accent stitching. Motorsport-inspired touches to the detailing include a carbon-fibre look cross-car applique, stitched leather instrument binnacle and sports profile leather steering wheel.
