THE VE Com­modore project has just spawned an­other baby— a States­man-based ex­port car called the Dae­woo Ver­i­tas.

It will be shipped to South Korea as a lux­ury head­liner for Dae­woo, which is best known for its value-driven small cars and the Cap­tiva SUV.

The Ver­i­tas has slightly dif­fer­ent styling but is me­chan­i­cally iden­ti­cal to its Holden brother, though it has a 3.6-litre Al­loytec V6 en­gine.

The new Holden ex­port pro­gram was an­nounced last week af­ter the suc­cess­ful dis­play of a States­man-based teaser, called the L4X show car, at the Seoul Mo­tor Show last year.

‘‘Ex­ports are an in­creas­ingly im­por­tant part of our busi­ness and Ver­i­tas again proves we have the ca­pa­bil­ity to de­sign, en­gi­neer and build ve­hi­cles for a wide range of con­sumers and mar­kets,’’ GMHolden chair­man Mark Reuss says.

Ver­i­tas is the sec­ond States­man to make the trip to South Korea. The pre­vi­ous­gen­er­a­tion WL was sold as the GM Dae­woo States­man from 2005, re­sult­ing in al­most 2000 sales.
