Commodore GTR specifically for Kiwis


Holden has released a limited edition Commodore designed especially for the New Zealand market.

To coincide with the launch of MY15 VF Commodore – along with the celebration of 60 years in New Zealand – the brand has created another limited edition GTR sedan, this time based on the VF series.

The company had previously carried out a similar and successful marketing exercise on the previous VE sedan some years ago, when Holden Australia executive director Peter Keeley was the boss of Holden NZ.

Holden NZ general manager of marketing, Marnie Samphier, says the GTR sedan has been developed after customer feedback suggested they were looking for something different.

“Commodore owners want the latest and greatest and something slightly different,” says Samphier. “We have created the Commodore GTR based on a highly specified Holden Commodore SV6.”

Only 100 Commodore GTR sedan’s will be built, and every car will be individually numbered under the bonnet. Each GTR sedan will also come with a numbered certificate to verify authenticity.

The GTR sedan will be differentiated by 20-inch forged alloy wheels in gloss black with Bridgestone Potenza tyres, as well as black racing strips and black highlights, including a black lip spoiler.

Inside the car will feature Holden branded sill plates as well as GTR branded carpet floor mats, GTR embossed front headrests, and GTR and 60th anniversary badges.

Holden says the GTR sedan will be priced from from $51,990 plus on road costs.
