SCOOP: Holden's all-new VE in the open

Interesting looking LWB model: a little more Asian looking than Audi-esque IMO.

Also, there's a rear shot at the Aussie website that reminded me of the Citroen C6. Hopefully that's just from the angle the shots were taken from...

That SS looks sick. I wonder how HSV will top that body kit without being too extravagant.

You never know... HSV might take the opposite approach and make it a sleeper. ^_^

Now if only we could a few of those out here to give the Audi and BMW saloon's the boot.

Better stance than 95% of GM cars made after 1996!!!

I like it, but maybe they can give it just a little more length in the trunk and rear bumper-kind of looks cramped to me back there. But it definitely is a nice car.

If only GM treated us North Americans to such nice cars!

A Merc S-Class and a Cadillac STS got together and had a child better known as the new long-wheelbase Holden.

But it still kicks ass!

And the SS gives me pretty big hopes for our Impala. What a great looking car!

:angry: The Statesman better get some style, if it expects to be a Buick. Just putting portholes on the side and a Buickish grille doesn't make a Buick! And this car won't be here for how many more years? If GM brings it here and badges it as a Chevrolet whatever and a Buick Statesman, they better be differentiated a lot, or else their words about brand identities (blah-blah-blah-blah) are hollow.

A very safe design... The LWB looks very 500-ish. I hope the US versions get different sheetmetal.

I want the long-wheelbase car as our Impala, Monte Carlo, Invicta and Bonneville. They can leave the greenhouse alone for the Impala, I love it, but everything from the belt down should be unique for us here in the States. The short wheelbase car can serve as a basis for our Camaro and GTO.

These photos are fabulous and give me even more hope for GMNA's future.

Bring 'em on! :)

Looks good. The LWB+LHD Chevrolet looks good. It'll make a great Impala.

I actually like the stance of the LWB for a Buick. Looking forward to seeing more.

Someone is totally going to be fired for this. To have it exposed like that is just inexcusable. Unless... GM staged these “spy shots” to create more buzz. Though, I highly doubt that.

That being said. Both vehicles are extremely hot and our Aussie friends will, without a doubt, gobble them up when they come out. Just hope they aren't scared off by high fuel prices.

Next Sedan deVille?

Look at the "porthole" just behind the front wheel

just like the new Escalades', the Caddy-like head

lights and the egg crate grille which even looks

like it has a Creast & Wreath in the center.

Perhaps they'll keep the FWD DTS and call this

a Fleetwood Brougham or something along those

lines. That's the best case scenario. Just like in

the 80s & 90s a FWD & RWD big sedan for Caddy

so that no one feels left out or has an excuse to

not buy a Caddy.
