Car Style - The Holden VE Commodore SS V-Series

So you're in Australia, and you want one of Holden's finest offerings? It's called the Holden Commodore SS V-Series. This is a car where you can be your own Will Davidson, your own Mark Skaife, or any other V8 Supercar driver that has a Holden as his rocketship. Here's a link:

Holden VE Commodore SS V-Series

The Holden Commodore SS V-Series may appear bland if it were brought to the United States (obviously, as a Chevrolet). What I love about these Australian sedans is that they are stylishly aggressive. Think about when the Holden Monaro was ported to the United States as the Pontiac GTO back around 2003. Considering the other products available from Pontiac at the time, the GTO was the best-looking car to me considering most of the other ugly-looking cars from Pontiac.

The front of the Commodore SS V-Series adds a nice body kit front for a little aggression and character. The grill and lights are minuscule, yet aggressive. On either side of the front bumper up front are fog lights. The bottom of the front bumper is aggressive, while not looking like a (and I don't use this word often) "rice rocket." The side profile of this car features and overfender design from the front bumper all the way to almost the rear bumper. The side skirts even adds some aggression as well. Small ducts on either side of the front quarter panels add a nice tough. While the car exudes aggression from bumper to bumper, the side view offers up a stylish and handsome appearance. Adding an extra touch of sportiness is the rear spoiler. The spoiler is low and adds a touring car look to it. The tail lights are clean, stylish, and simple. The rear bumper is met with twin mufflers at the back including a rear diffuser unit.

The interior of the VE Commodore SS V-Series is every bit as inviting as a luxury-type car, but with a lot of sportiness. There are even red-colored gauges flanking the "SS" logo on the tachometer and "V8" on the speedomoeter. The steering wheel looks quite lovely even with the big metallic Holden lion on it. Nice metallic pedals add a very nice touch as well. There's even a nice navigation system inside as well.

I think the Holden VE Commodore SS V-Series is a car that is both aggressive and classy. Its heritage is more pointed towards performance driving, but this performance car packs a good deal of style. It's not a luxury car, but it isn't a Sunday driver. It's not the car you're probably going to take a driving test in (of course, I'm not from Australia or live in Australia). But if you want to tell Ford [Australia] to "shove it," this is the car to do it with.
