Holden rolls out the specials

Holden is readying Black and Reserve Editions of its SV6, SS and SS-V Redline Commodores.

But there’s a catch: the Reserve Edition is for employees only as part of a plan to reward staff, many of whom won’t have a job once local manufacturing finishes at the end of 2017.

The Reserve packs will be offered on SV6 and SS-V and get 20-inch alloys, with V8 models using the Redline’s more potent Brembo brakes.

Black Edition models will get 20-inch wheels as well as the option of the same brakes fitted to American Chevrolet Caprice cop cars.
