To celebrate Craig Lowndes' 20th year in V8 Supercars, Holden has revealed a Special Edition Commodore SS V Redline bearing the race driver's name.

Available now, each of the 233 specials will come with a unique build plate and a certificate of authenticity, along with special badging, a black styling and graphics pack, and a gloss black roof.

All are available exclusively in Red Hot or Heron White, and each car is hand-finished at the Holden Enhancement Centre at the carmaker's Elizabeth plant in South Australia.

The models also come with an invitation to a private Red Bull Racing event hosted by Lowndes and two pit-tour access passes to a V8 Supercar round.

As with regular SS V models, the new special is powered by Holden's 6.0 litre V8 which produces 270kW and 530Nm in manual form and 260kW/517Nm with the auto model.

And, as with the refreshed 2015 range announced today, automatic versions of the Craig Lowndes SS V also get paddle shifters.

Upgrades include 20-inch alloys shod with 245/275 Bridgestone Potenza rubber, and there's also four-piston Brembo brakes and updated FE3 sports suspension.

“I’ve had a lot of success on the racetrack behind the wheel of Commodores and to celebrate that with this special road-going version is a great privilege. I know fans and customers all Australia are going to love it,” Lowndes said.

“This Special Edition Commodore is the pinnacle of Holden performance and to have my name on it is a true honour."
