The all-new Holden ZB Commodore

Holden’s next generation Supercar has finally broken cover as development of the ZB Commodore continues ahead of its much anticipated competitive debut next year.

Designed and built by factory Holden team Triple Eight, the new car boasts a distinctive new look with the race car based around the European Opel Insignia.

The ZB Commodore, which will replace the popular VF, features a hatchback rear end accompanied by a striking rear wing, while the front has undergone a facelift.

The project has amassed 20,000 hours of work from Triple Eight staff over 10 months and development will continue this week, with the car set to undertake the first of three Accredited Manufacturer Test days at Queensland Raceway on Thursday.

Interest in the car is growing prompting Walkinshaw Racing, Garry Rogers Motorsport, Brad Jones Racing and Erebus Motorsport to indicate plans to upgrade.

As previously reported, moving to Holden’s latest iteration will cost teams approximately $40,000 per car.

The ZB Commodore is likely to be the first of a new wave of Supercars as the championship adopts Gen2 regulations.
