9

Just nine Holden VF Com­modores/utes re­main in stock, ac­cord­ing to a Holden spokesper­son. And the be­wst bit? Each of them has a V8 un­der the bon­net.

ONE UTE

Fans of the V8-pow­ered ute can re­joice, with just a sin­gle ex­am­ple re­main­ing in stock, a Mag­num spe­cial edi­tion, in ‘Phan­tom Black’. Holden built 240 Mag­num utes to farewell the VF Com­modore, and only 174 ‘Red Hot’ MSE sedans were built with au­to­matic trans­mis­sions, while 173 self self-shift­ing shift­ing ‘Heron White’ sedans rolled off the pro­duc­tion line. The ‘Phan­tom Black’ Mag­num ute is even rarer, with just 39 au­to­mat­ics built in the lim­ited-pro­duc­tion run.

MAN­U­ALS ARE GONE

There isn’t a sin­gle VF Com­modore with a V8 en­gine and man­ual trans­mis­sion combo left in stock. Four of the re­main­ing cars are SS V Red­line sedans (one in ‘Red Hot’, one in ‘Phan­tom Black’, one in ‘Slip­stream Blue’, and one in ‘Heron White’), a pair of Mo­tor­sport Edi­tion (MSE) sedans in ‘Heron White’ and ‘Red Hot’, two ‘Heron White’ Di­rec­tors and just one ‘Phan­tom Black’ Mag­num ute.

LIGHTS OUT IN OZ

The news of the re­main­ing cars con­firms that ev­ery Sportswago­n, on, reg­u­lar ute, Calais and Caprice has now been sold. The last Aussie-built Ford Fal­con took two years to o sell, with a blue XR8 Sprint only be­ing dis­cov­ered after a deal­er­ship was sold.
