got to love the SV6
hmmmm sv6TT would be mega.
A few questions to all the haters:
Did you like the VR when it was unveiled? (if applicable) Wasn't really into cars.
Did you like the VT when it was unveiled? (if applicable) Didn't really like it, still don't really
Did you like the VY when it was unveiled? didn't mind te vy, still think the same.
What is your opinion (looks) of the VR, VT and VY now?
Some people reckon this is either the SS-V or a HSV, I doubt it would be a HSV because HSV are HSV, not Holden (know what I mean), all Holden do is provide the base car for HSV who puts all the coolbits on. Note the red calipers on the back (and none on the front ) and the bright dash with pods at the top. Certainly the sportiest of the Holdens if I had to guess.
EDIT: And why would they not bother to cover up the SV6 but to even put the chequers on this.. unless this is an old one, and the SV6 came off the production line
EDIT2: OHMYGOD look at the rotors :|
Is it me or are those HSV brakes? They are very big brakes for a 6 cylinder, I'm thinking Turbo baby. haha
well looks to be a lot larger inside.... But Im not sure I like the trade off of shorter bonnet & boots.... the back widow/pillar goin back so far looks crap IMO. I think perhaps the short nose will grow on me, but Im not sure about the rear - what does the bum look like???
as for the above post.... VR/VS - still dont like them, espesh the rears.
VT - love it! always have!
VY - took me a very long time to get over the fact that the bum looked so much like a magna, but I do like the front end....
all in all Im not sure Im a big fan of the looks of the VE just yet, wouldnt mind seeing what interior options are thou.... appears a full woodgrain dash top?
EDIT : Just noticed Juzza's sig.... yes, yes I am a fool... not sure Im complete yet, But Im working on it!
Shaping up nicely.
Just a bit surprised how conservative they appear to have been on front end design - headlamps and front spoiler look different - however nose grill still retains VY/VZ proportions.
My guess is that this will be a car with a number of pleasing smaller changes rather than bold changes...an indication that they can't afford an AU type fiasco for such a critical model.
I think the Commodore looks nice....but im definitely not very keen on the long wheelbase version/statesman. Looks very american/buickish. I prefer the look of the current statesman by far.
I actually really like it, The SS I'd lose the rear spoiler, put some 20"'s on her, An dump that ass end down to fill that huge wheel arch,...
Hehehe I really like it, the back end is so fkn unique, i'd remove all spoilers an tint the tail lights lol
Hey Lets give it a go and wait till we actually see it in the flesh.
For me the photos upuntil these ones looked promising. The when i saw these i thought "ewww" aswell.
After talking to a work mate how has actually seen it in the flesh he made a comment about the actual photos published has not done it any favours. Bad angle shots.
dumped with a taste of color rofl
Just a quick job
someone photoshop it for me... I wanna see....
after seeing the green pic im convinced its an sv6 you can clearly see the sv6 signage. anyway love it!!! always been a fan since the first real pic.
congrats holden on a top looking car
It's an SS not an SV6 they said so in the story saying it had carry over SS badges.
Is it just me or did that statesman seem to have gaurd vents like the commodore, if so thats a bit wired and they are pretty high on the guard.
Have a look at this site, it is for the chevrolet impala have a look at the arse end of it i think it will be similar in styling to the commodore but the commodore will probably be a bit more rounded im guessing.
Oh I like it more in green
that overhead shot looks awesome...how fat is that thing?? :thumbsup:
I reckon the shot from the back end looks the best from that article...
Looks great from this angle!
I dont think any car looks good from that angle. Does look pretty ugly. and like a camry as someone already said
thinking a little bit the same, but i did say that about the VY when it came out so im guessing time will tell
