The Redline Edition Calais V-Series and SS V-Series sedan, Sportwagon
and Ute will take up top positions in Holden�s updated VE Series II
range, to be launched later this month.
Intended for enthusiast drivers, Redline Edition models offer high-level braking and sports handling capabilities to match their powerful 6.0-litre V8 credentials.
Advanced chassis dynamics come courtesy of specialist Holden engineers, who developed a track-inspired FE3 super sports suspension set-up* to complement the extra stopping power of four-piston Brembo high performance front brakes.
The Redline Edition range is further distinguished by exclusive forged and polished 19-inch alloy wheels, matched to low profile tyres.
Holden also raises the bar with the inclusion of full colour mapping satellite navigation
and a rear camera** as standard equipment in V-Series models, which feature the new multimedia touch screen Holden-iQ system and smart interior treatments.
All Redline Editions are compatible with bio-ethanol, also known as E85, an emission-reducing �fuel of the future� that already powers V8 Supercars.
Holden Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales John Elsworth said the Redline Edition introduced added excitement to the company�s high-feature luxury performance range.
�We know the performance enthusiasts who drive Holden sports vehicles enjoy the way the engine performs with the exhilarating V8 engine performance of our sport models,� Mr Elsworth said.
�We know that their interest goes beyond straight-line power and torque though. They�re looking for a satisfying overall driving experience with superior chassis dynamics.
�With the Redline Edition, we set out to improve that experience for them, to provide the ultimate sports ride by introducing features we know they�ll value the most - track-inspired handling for great road connection and control combined with awesome stopping power.
