Holden prepping new concept car for Melbourne Show
Speaking at the Detroit Auto Show, GM product boss Bob Lutz confirmed Holden would reveal a concept car to “knock everybody's socks off” at the Melbourne show. According to Drive, Holden’s tuning arm HSV could also reveal a high-performance concept sedan, complete with a 7.0L V8 engine as well as a hotted up version of the upcoming Commodore wagon.
This is all bad news for Ford, whose new Falcon sedan is a make-or-break model for the small Aussie outcrop. Sales numbers for the Falcon have been dwindling over the years and if the new model doesn’t prove to be a success it could mean the end of local production for the Blue Oval.
