Z06-engined Chevy Lumina in Australia
Holden, the Australian division of General Motors that gave us the Chevy Lumina SS and CSV CR8, have cooked up a new car based on the same underpinnings. To be shown at the Melbourne Auto Show today, the tentatively-named HSV Commodore W427 is a new super-expensive offering with the 505 hp Corvette Z06 engine.
The car can apparently do 0-100 kph in 4.7 seconds, with a top speed limited to 250 kph. The car will undergo further testing in icy Sweden to calibrate its stability control system. The Australian price is said to be twice that of last expensive Commodore model, which means if it comes here, it will cost around Dhs 350,000.
