Special Edition Commodore a tribute to Brock


Holden Dealer Team (HDT) has built a retro-styled Holden Commodore sedan to salute the late Peter Brock

HDT was Holden’s semi-official performance and motorsports division up till 1987, and was run by Aussie race legend Peter Brock, a nine-time Bathurst 1000 winner.

Sadly, Brock died while driving in a rally in Australia on September 8, 2006.

As a tribute to Brock and his legacy, the guys at HDT have built a limited run of Holden Commodore sedans designed to mimic the original performance models launched during the Brock days. Called the Heritage Series, the final version, designed after the legendary VL Group A Commodore, has been unveiled today.

Based on the latest VE Holden Commodore and bearing the signature of Peter Brock, the modern super sedan has all the hallmarks of its classic predecessor.

The car features a 6.2-litre LS V8, which has been supercharged to 470 horsepower, Bilstein shock absorbers, a full bodykit, Harrop performance brakes, 20-inch wheels, and an Energy Polarizer.  

The Energy Polarizer was a device said to align the ‘energies’ of the car to give it a boost in performance (its never been proven), and was part of the reason HDT split with Holden. Brock began fitting the component to special performance Holden Commodores being built by HDT during the 1980s.

Only 250 examples are scheduled to be built, each with an individual build plate.
