There is a new direction in the wings for Holden as production officially moved offshore following the last car rolling off Australian production lines in late 2017.
To mark the end of local production in 2017, Holden released a series of limited edition 6.2 Litre V8 Commodore models including the Holden Commodore Director based on the Calais V(only 360 made) the Holden Motorsport ( only 1200 made) and the Holden Magnum ute (only 240 made)
The Director name pays tribute to the 1987 Peter Brock HDT based on a VL Calais where only a handful were ever made. The limited edition VFII Calais V Director is powered by a 304kw/570Nm LS3 6.2 Litre V8. It adds Cross drilled Brembo brakes and the only factory produced Holden ever to add four-mode Magnetic Ride Control from HSV.
As one of the final models to be made on Australian soil, Holden released only 360 of the limited release Director models. Of the 360 made, 60 of the cars were sent to New Zealand with the remaining 300 sent to Holden aficionados across Oz. Most of those remaining were snapped up by Holden dealer franchise owners. Due to that, only a handful were left for sale to the general public.
In October 2017, a Holden Director with the build number 05 was auctioned off to an online buyer for $130,000.
