MELBOURNE, Australia — The Holden VF Commodore SS V showcar has debuted in Australia, providing the closest look yet at the 2014 Chevrolet SS, which will be unveiled on Saturday at the Daytona International Speedway.

The styling and features of the Holden VF Commodore SS V are expected to be similar to the 2014 Chevrolet SS.

No technical specifications were disclosed for the Holden VF Commodore SS V. The Commodore SS V is the performance version of the new VF Commodore revealed last weekend. The car is the successor to the Pontiac G8 in the U.S.

"When it came to our sport luxury range, we wanted to create an Australian performance car that would be at home just about anywhere in the world," said Mike Devereux, Holden chairman, in a statement.

The Holden VF Commodore SS V was rolled out in a custom orange metallic exterior paint called "Fantale." The orange paint is accented by 20-inch black wheels. The front Brembo brake calipers are finished in gloss silver. The car features what Holden calls a "traditional sports grille," along with a prominent lower air intake. The performance variant also gets an aluminum hood with a center crease to "emphasize performance potential."

Jeweled halogen projector headlights round out the package.

Holden said the cabin layout is the "real deal" and is "close to mainstream VF SS V production design intent."

The sports seats get jet-black leather and suede trim. A leather-wrapped sports steering wheel and ice blue ambient lighting amp up the interior.

Edmunds says: The excitement continues to build for the unveiling of the 2014 Chevrolet SS.
