Now for sale this rare VN Commodore SS, available for your inspection in Launceston, Tasmania.
The VN Commodore saw the return of the SS nameplate not seen without a HDT badge attached since the VH Commodore. At the time, the VN SS was sold at a whisker under the Calais as the most expensive VN Commodore you could buy. Evolving through subsequent generations, the SS added features like independent rear suspension, ABS, a 5.7-litre V8 and even a supercharged V6 option but it was the VN that set the template for the modern SS that followed - right through to the last Aussie VF SS Commodore.
Rarely offered for sale is this very nice VN SS Commodore featuring the 5L V8 and 5 speed manual combo. The car has recently received a 2 Pac respray in factory Atlas Grey metallic paint while the car still retains the immaculate original interior.
Featuring the all matching numbers 5.0-litre 165 kW (221hp) fuel injected V8 engine, T5 manual transmission, Limited Slip Differential, Driving lights, FE2 sports suspension, Body kit including front & rear bumper lip, side skirts, boot lip spoiler, SS decals and striping and SS interior fabrics incorporating a grey/red checker design.
