|Holden Commodore V8|
Holden is expected to announce this week an export program for the Commodore V8, which will see the Adelaide made car become a race and showroom star in the United States.
Though sales of the Elizabeth-produced sedan continue to slide in Australia, a Commodore V8 will be exported to America where it will be sold with the Chevrolet SS Performance badge.
In that guise, it would also star for the heartland brand in the Nascar stock car racing series, which runs second only to Formula One in global popularity.
Holden has been testing left-hand drive cars on public roads in Victoria in recent weeks and running it head-to-head with one of its strongest potential rivals, the Dodge Charger, as it finalises its end of the important new deal.
