At least Ford did the right thing and put down the Falcon.
Camry? Will anyone notice the difference?
The GM PR machine has been working overtime this week trotting out concepts and classics like the Hurricane, Torana GTR-X, and of course EFIJY in an attempt to draw attention away from the fact the factory closes on Friday – and the less appealing fact that thousands of people are about to lose their jobs.
Holden took the opportunity to reveal the ZB Commodore VXR to the Australian public for the first time this week at Motorclassica in Melbourne.
To go on sale early 2018, the VXR boasts a 3.6-litre V6 engine paired with a 9-speed tranny and adaptive all-wheel-drive, putting out 235kW of power and 381Nm of torque.
They’ve apparently spent a fair bit of time trying to engineer into the car the kind of ride and handling that Aussies will be expecting.
“It was a pleasure to reveal the ZB Commodore VXR to the Australian public for the first time and it certainly looks the part on the stand next to the previous generations of Commodore,” GM’s Australia Design Director, Richard Ferlazzo, told the gathering.
Richard, who designed EFIJY, is a really a nice bloke. Guess he must have drawn the short straw.
