GM Holden will be showcasing its sleek new VE Commodore Sportwagon when it tackles Mount Panorama for the WPS Bathurst 12 Hour on 8-10 February.

Holden Motorsport will field a 6.0L V8 Sportwagon SS backed Jack Daniel’s for V8 Supercar drivers Shane Price, Cameron McConville and enduro specialist Nathan Pretty.

The production version of the VE Sportwagon will be unveiled at the 2008 Melbourne International Motor Show, starting 29 February.

GM Holden’s Executive Director–Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, Alan Batey, said, “Holden has a great history of success at Mount Panorama, so what better place for the new ultra cool Sportwagon to be showcased than on the track at Bathurst?”

“The 12 Hour is a race for production cars so is an ideal event for us to spotlight new models in the Holden range. Last year we ran a pair of Astras – one an SRi Turbo Coupe, the other a CDTi Diesel.

“With Sportwagon due in Holden showrooms across the country in the coming months, we saw this as the perfect opportunity to underline the sporting pedigree of the latest model in the VE range whilst highlighting its great style and handling.”

A concept version of the new VE Sportwagon made its world debut at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney last October.

The car takes VE Commodore’s award-winning design and engineering advances and integrates them into a stylish and practical wagon that appeals to both families and businesses.

It is the third VE derivative after sedan and ute ranges.

VE Sportwagon will be available in the full range of VE Commodore variants including Omega, Berlina and Calais, plus the sporty SV6, SS and the range topping SS-V and Calais V models.
