ZB Com­modore shines at po­lice academy

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

The new Com­modore might not have the hot fuzz im­age of its Ss-badged Aussie pre­de­ces­sor, but its han­dling and sta­bil­ity have im­pressed the boffins at Vic­to­ria Po­lice. Vic Pol’s trans­port man­ager Frank Melilli told Wheels the AWD ver­sion in par­tic­u­lar “holds the road bet­ter than any­thing Holden ever pro­duced”. Don’t ex­pect to see the ZB as a high­way pa­trol car, how­ever – its rel­a­tive lack of grunt com­pared to the now-su­per­seded V8-pow­ered VFII will con­tain it to a gen­eral du­ties role.
