Holden has put more performance polish on its sports luxury V-Series badge with the launch of five stand-out Redline Editions.

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 6.0L 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.
