VE Commodore

CommodoreIn 2006 GM Holden will launch the next generation of Australia’s best-selling car: the revolutionary VE Commodore. To celebrate the release of the VE, GM Holden has commissioned this major book project. The new VE Commodore will boast all-new architecture, evolutionary interior and exterior design, and a host of technical, performance and safety enhancements. The VE Commodore is the inside story of the development of the VE from the initial idea and vision through to the ‘reveal’ and launch in 2006. It includes interviews with the key design, engineering and technical people, current and former GM Holden management in Australia, and other General Motors executives around the world. From the first sketches of the design through to the engineering, engine, transmission, chassis development, body structure, safety and mechanical variants, The VE Commodore is a fascinating account of the creation of a landmark Australian automotive program. It will also cover the all-important testing program, the early promotion and the launch to the dealers, press and public. The VE Commodore is a high-quality, presentation-style book. Evocative full-colour pictures, state of the art graphics and technical illustrations feature throughout, befitting a product as visually striking and colourful as the VE Commodore. This book will be of enormous appeal to the thousands of die-hard Holden fans across the country.
