Limited Edition Statesman International Has Exclusive Appeal

Holden has released a stylish, limited edition version of its prestige long wheelbase Statesman. Only 250 examples of the WH Statesman International model will be produced.

The individually appointed Holden Statesman International will have special appeal for buyers who seek exclusivity - on top of the refined design characteristics and performance attributes that make Statesman the best-selling luxury car in its class.

The Statesman International is powered by Holden's advanced GEN III 5.7 litre alloy V8, generating peak power of 220 kW at 5000 rpm and maximum torque of 446Nm at 4400 rpm. It is equipped with unique 17" alloy wheels and low-profile 235/45 tyres.

Its subtle performance-oriented appearance is enhanced by an integrated rear deck spoiler and body-coloured grille treatment. It is further identified by International Series badging and a tone on tone Phantom black paint finish.

The spacious interior of the Statesman International is trimmed in an exclusive shade of Howe leather, Light Shale, and the steering wheel has two-tone leather covering. The instrument cluster has been re-styled, and features a mid-grey face with sports style surrounds in satin silver and contrasting white indicator needles.

The Statesman International also features the extended memory personal identity key system, which remembers the driver's seat and mirror positions.

Holden Marketing Manager, Large Cars, John Elsworth, says the Statesman International will emulate the success of Holden's 'mainstream' Statesman and Caprice long-wheelbase flagships, which are established at the forefront of the Australian luxury car market and competing successfully in export markets against the best in the world.

"Image-conscious buyers will be quick to recognise that here is a car which has a definite style of its own, but at the same time is well-proven and able to deliver just what they want in terms of limousine size, high-tech comfort and refined performance," he said.

"Given the level of interest already shown in the Statesman International, and the fact that build quantity is limited to just 250, we don't expect these to remain long on the showroom floor," John Elsworth concluded.
