The Hot Wheels casting resembles the Motorsport variation of the second generation Holden Commodore 4-door sedan designed and built by Holden Special Vehicles (HSV), GM Holden's performance car wing. The Labeling '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 Hot Wheels casting most closely resembles the Group A Car used by Holden for racing in the early 1990s from its 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.
The Holden Commodore was also released with a light bar and renamed Police Cruiser. Trivia: The Police in Australia only used modifications of the base-model Holden Commodore and not it's more expensive HSV Counterparts.
The Holden Commodore has been released following 1/64 scale versions:
