Holden giveth, and Holden taketh away. While we're still mourning the departure of the Pontiac G8 here in the U.S., the General's Australian subsidiary - whose Commodore gave birth to the G8 in the first place - has just announced a pair of special editions that seem to take back what we've lost.

The Holden VE Commodore SS V-Series Special Edition - available in sedan, Sportwagon and Ute body-styles - ditches the Australian brand's usual grille in favor of a twin nostril front end with a splitter down low and a pair of hood scoops up top. Look familiar? It's a Pontiac G8 GT, only without the Pontiac emblem. They just wiped the arrowhead off with a tissue like it was an errant booger. There's also the...um, sophisticated-sounding International Special Edition that packs AUS $7,500 of optional equipment, including leather interior and 18-inch alloys, into the Pontiac Commodore with the 3.0-liter direct injection V6 and six-speed auto, a.k.a. the Pontiac G8 V6.

You can read more about the pair in the press release after the jump. But all you really need to know is that the prisoner of GM's war on spending wasn't put to death, it was just sent off to Australia until the parts supply runs out.

Gotta use those spare Pontiac noses somehow, right? Wonder what happened to the Pontiac badges, though...

2010 Holden SS V-Series Special Edition And Special Edition International Models Announced

MERE RUMOURS LAST month, the Pontiac-faced Holden SS V-Series Special Edition has today been announced by Holden.

The SS V-Series Special Edition sports a grille clearly inspired by that featured on the SS-based, US-market Pontiac G8.

Along with the special edition grille, the letterbox bonnet scoops and lower splitter of the G8 have made their way across to the new special edition Holden.

“SS V-Series has always been about sports performance and ultimate road presence. Now we’ve dialled it up even further," Philip Brook, Holden Director of Marketing said.

Available in three colours - black, red and blue - the Special Edition version of the SS V-Series is offered in sedan, Sportwagon and Ute form.

The SS V-Series Special Edition will be available from November, after the Ute makes its debut on Friday the 2nd of October at the Deni Ute Muster.

The wound is so deep now you could go diving in it. Deep sea diving.

I wish they'd just velcro some bowties to these (for easy removal) and ship them over.

I'll pay for my own Arrowheads.

*sigh*

Available in red, black and blue, the color of beaten, bruised US customers who wanted these cars. How sadistic are these people?
