Limited Edition Berlina International Wagon

Holden must be starting to get worried. They usually dont make special edition models till the end of a model run.

They look alright though don't they? I saw one and it's not half bad in that dark metallic black/grey.

Haven't seen one yet, but Calais and Statesman Internationals weren't end of model specials.

Does it have the blacked out headlight surrounds?

Yeah i must admit it looks very nice, shame Ford doesnt offer a Futura Wagon with atleast some Fairmont options.

Basically, it's Holden's excuse to make a 'Calais Wagon' a model they dont currently have in their line up. Badged as a Berlina it has Calais features like dual zone air and the blacked out projector beam headlights, along with electric seats. They r probably trying to further capitalise on the fact that Ford does not anymore offer ANY luxury wagon, only XT and Futura.

Yeah, well good luck to them for that price, most families cant afford anything better then a Futura/Acclaim anyways, and as for company reps, well they usually dont get any thing better then a Executive / XT with cruise control and ABS.

Gotta say that Berlina wagon does look nice, the wheels seem to suite the car. One thing though i'd colour the mirrors for sure it will look much better.
