Moreover, that Astra and Commodore are leaving, information appeared last year, now it became known that GM will abandon the off-road family. At the same time, the closure of the last Holden enterprise took place in 2017, and from that period the company began to import cars from other continents.

  Holden has been producing cars in an Australian factory since 1948, and the last built instance of Commodore was 7,687,675 in a row.

 At the same time, before the conveyor stopped, they launched a “farewell” variation of the car under the name Motorsport Edition. Such a “4-door” had a V8 aspirated engine with a volume of 6.2 liters and a capacity of 413 hp. (570 Nm).

A total of 1,200 units of the Holden Commodore Motorsport Edition were produced, the cost starting from AUS $ 61,790
