    Just got back from a trip to NZ, where I saw a black VE Commodore with "GTR" badges (in Tauranga, I think) which looked factory fit, not aftermarket.
    Any Kiwis who can explain ?

    Nice. Ironically, I have always said you should be able to option an SV6 up to an SSV/SSV Redline interior/suspension/wheels package. For those who want the look & luxury without the V8. But seriously, calling it a GTR? LOL!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm not going to argue its disrespectful to the GTR name and legend. However, I think we might see many legends destroyed when the next gen commodore is introduced or as the say in the states #Notmycommodore lol

    Edit: Holden NZ introduced the Commodore GTR in 2007, they are not worth much more than a standard SV6, maybe a grand or two at best.

    if it's spec'd similar to the SSV Redline it's more than a sticker pack.

    No, we did not get them in Oz.
    So basically it is SV6 with a premium interior and wheels. Nothing wrong with that. May have been a bit expensive in $AU, but $NZ ... can't comment.
    Thanks for the replies.

    I wouldn't mind betting that this GTR would be quicker around Bathurst than the original Torry.

    GTR additional specs include:

    • Genuine 20inch forged alloy wheels in gloss black with Bridgestone Potenza tyres.
    • Black racing strips and black highlights
    • Black lip spoiler.
    • Holden branded sill plates.
    • GTR branded carpet floor mats
    • GTR embossed front headrests
    • GTR and 60th anniversary badges

    Doesn't sound very SSVR to me. Doesn't even get the vinyl seats.

    Well then it's not even close to an SSV or SSV Redline. Sticker pack rip off!

    It's yet another "stickers 'n' wheels" deal where Holden NZ try and bump up the price by adding nothing of real substance (except the wheels in this case). We've had all sorts of stuff over the years, like the VN GTS that was just a V6 with some pinstripes and whatnot.
