2004 Holden Calais VY Series 2 V8 Gen III V8 from Australia and New Zealand
A SWB mafia car
Basically nothing has gone wrong so far.
Great luxury SWB car.
Berry red colour looks very nice indeed.
HBD rear spoiler makes the car look better than ever.
It is so comfortable to drive. Has a lot of power (stock 235 kW). All the luxury items that you need that is standard. No need to pay $50 grand on a base model mercedes and BMW and then pay more for the options. The quality is excellent now a major step up from the previous models. It handles well. It's a joy to own and drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If you like the VY check out the VZ!!!
What are the main differences between the VYII and the VZ... I thought they were mainly cosmetic and no major change to the engine... but I don't know much.
The VZ Calais got the new 3.6L 190 kw V6 and 5 speed auto. A few exterior and interior changes. V8 model gets an upgrade and uses electronic drive by wire throttle system.
