Speaking in Brisbane, Lowndes said that to be able to work with Holden on the design of this car was a privilege.

“It’s been a few months since I was down in Melbourne working with Holden on the car and to finally see it here, with my build number, is really exciting. It has been a great privilege to have my name on the car and I can’t wait to put it through its paces,” said Lowndes.
