The Holden Commodore – imported to the U.S. in sedan guise as the Chevrolet SS – may be living its final years on the market, but the Australian vehicle continues to deliver a lot of excitement thanks to special-edition models. September 2014 already brought us the enticing HSV GTS Maloo, the most powerful Ute ever built in the land Down Under. Unlike the GTS Maloo, whose purpose was to become the most extreme ute you can buy at a dealership, this latest special-edition Commodore is based on the SS V model and pays tribute to one of Australia’s most famous racing drivers.

We are talking about Craig Lowndes, who made its first appearance in the V8 Supercar series in 1994, as a 20-year-old rookie. Lowndes finished second in Australia’s greatest race, the Bathurst 1000, that year, and then went on to become the greatest driver in Holden’s rich motorsports history. With 43 wins and three V8 Supercar championships to his name, Lowndes definitely deserves to have a Holden Commodore bearing his name. Read on to find out more about this unique sedan.
