Compared to the stock Chevrolet SS sports sedan, Jeff Gordon's version looks much meaner (in a good way). Somehow it comes off as more butch than the upgrades would suggest, almost as if it has a wide-body kit (compare the Chevrolet Jeff Gordon SS Performance Sedan Concept to the near-production car). But Chevy says that the exterior upgrades are limited to a satin-red exterior, a more aggressive custom front grille, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler and custom-finished 20-inch wheels. Of course, it's been lowered, which not only enhances the handling, but also its stance.

This SS is equipped with high-performance brakes, Chevy says, and a Borla performance exhaust system helps the engine exhale more freely. Perforated suede seat inserts, embroidered head rests, a flat-bottom steering wheel and a Chevrolet Accessories pedal kit round out the package. Everything else remains unchanged, including the LS3 6.2-liter V8, which pumps out 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission with TAPShift manual control. This leads us to one question: where's the full-manual transmission?

      I think the front-end of the new SS is horrid . . . too many different surfaces going too many different directions. The car looked 1000% better as a Pontiac (cleaner, simpler)!

      The Holden Commodore looks pretty good in that lick of paint but only 415bhp? Is Chev saving something up? The HSV GTS that you can get in Australia thumps out 563bhp and 740Nm of torque.

        But that has a supercharger. The NA models top out at 456hp and 570Nm

        The HSV also costs about $80K in US dollars. I think GM is trying to offer something alot cheaper than that.

      Still doesn't look as good as a Pontiac G8 GT.

      Loving that satin red paintjob. I wonder what the upkeep is on that, as matte can be a bit troublesome (is satin the same finish as matte?)

      So it has an exhaust and better brakes and that's supposed to be a performance model and on top of it no manual!?

      Glad to see it in another color other than Rental Car Grey.

      I really liked this car when the first images came out, but find myself thinking it looks a bit dated already... I don't dislike it, but it seems like they should have "transplanted" the new Impala's body onto this chassis instead.

      Somehow I think this car will sell closer to 48 rather than 24. Pun intended.

        Thank goodness you don't like it Laser. Your lack of endorsement, means the car should sell well enough to keep Holden pleased. You've proven to be a consistent barometer of the wrong opinion.
