Special sports variation of the second generation Holden Commodore 4-door sedan made by the Performance car wing of General Motors Holden called Holden Special Vehicles (HSV).(Holden's second generation of Commodores being the 'VN' series with the VN nameplate being built in Australia from August 1988 to September 1991.) The Labelling 'SV' on the door panels and the more streamlined appearance is the indicator that this car is not an Ordinary Holden Commodore, but the HSV 'SV' series. The SV series was broken into 3 basic sub models at the time this car was copyrighted by Hot Wheels (1989) these variants being as follows: SV89 only offered for the 1989 Model range with a production run of 200, SV3800, and SV5000. There was also the Commodore SS Group A SV race car. The Group A SV was designed to homologate HSV's SV-badged special commodores for the Australian Racing scene. Equipped with HEC 5000i V8 engines (special modified Holden V8 engines) T he Hot Wheels casting most closely resembles the Group A Car used by Holden for racing in the early 1990s from it's front bumper, grille and the lines in the bodywork.
Ironically, the Hot Wheels casting was launched the same year that the Holden VN Commodore was taken out of production.
A Real Classic Australian car, known best for its Performance and durability. Available as a Police sedan since 1996.
