Follow the step-by-step development of a landmark GMH vehicle from design concept to mass production – the first truly Australian Holden range in 35 years. Meet the people who made the decisions, see the evaluation process in action, learn how the full-size clay model is produced, hear the arguments for design revisions, appreciate the senior executives reactions, follow the interior space fit-out, compare Australian and overseas engineering requirements, attend the crash test laboratory, observe the fuel and handling tests, experience the outback & mountain test drives, watch the assembly-line revisions, marvel at how HSV further invigorated the model; and finally, phew, listen to the dealers, press and public when they are introduced to the VE Commodore. It is a book like no other automotive publication, packed with colour photographs, exciting to read – a real insider’s volume, and beautifully produced.
