In September 1994, a 20-year-old rookie made his first appearance for Holden in a V8 Supercar at Sandown, and just one month later became a household name when he and teammate Brad Jones finished second in Australia’s great race, the Bathurst 1000. That rookie was the one and only Craig Lowndes.
On the eve of Lowndes’ 20th anniversary in V8 Supercars, Holden is commemorating ‘20 years of Craig Lowndes’ with a Special Edition VF Commodore paying tribute to an Australian motorsport legend.
Going on sale later in 2014, the Craig Lowndes Special Edition Commodore will feature a unique set of specifications and each car will be hand-finished and individually numbered by trained technicians at the Holden Enhancement Centre, located at Holden’s Adelaide vehicle plant.
Buyers of the Craig Lowndes Special Edition will also be offered a package of exclusive, ‘experiences including:
- Framed certificate of authenticity with build plate
- Red Bull Racing private function and tour hosted by Craig Lowndes
- Two General Admission tickets to customers local 2015 V8 Supercar race and Red Bull Racing pit tour
Additional pricing, specification and further details of the Craig Lowndes Special Edition VF Commodore will be released later in 2014.
“After 20 years it’s a huge honour to have Holden develop this fantastic tribute model. I’ve had a lot of success on the racetrack behind the wheel of Commodores and to have that celebrated with this special road-going version is a great privilege. I know fans and customers all over the country are going to love it,” said Lowndes.
