Read Holden Storm ute

From drive.com.au




Holden has released the 1000-only limited edition Storm Ute with unique specification and what is said to be $2400 worth of added value features.
The Storm (pictured) comes with the 3.8 litre ECOTEC V6, 5-speed manual or optional automatic, a choice of four strong colours (including a couple of chromatics) and more.

Wheels are 16-inch, six spoke alloys in satin silver, there's a deeper front bumper fascia, SS side skirts and rear bumperettes and, yes, there's Storm badging.

Inside, seats are trimmed in charcoal and black with bolsters in Anthracite leather, colour-coded to a unique Titanium-finished instrument panel and console and leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Air conditioning, ABS anti-lock braking, FE2 sports suspension and a driver/passenger airbag combination are all included as standard.

Also released this week is a Holden By Design version of the Storm, which adds 17-inch, 8-spoke alloy wheels, power antenna, chrome sports bar and tailored sports bar tonneau cover.

Colour selection is: Hyper (chromatic yellow metallic); Delft (cobalt blue metallic); Phantom (black metallic with silver highlights); Red Hot (chromatic solid red).

Recommended retail prices are:

Storm Ute
$31,990 (manual)
$32,750 (automatic)

Holden by Design Storm Ute
$34,290 (manual)
$35,050 (automatic)

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

The gap is shrinking too. Was much more than 200 early last year.
