(But it AIN'T Holden front end (but based on the Ford setup- upper/lower control arms, not McPherson strut)
It AIN'T a Holden (or any GM) engine configuration (based on Ford block)
It AIN'T a Holden rear diff/axle setup (based on Ford setup)
It AIN'T a Holden gearbox...(it's a Hollinger, based on European Ford)
And even the VE body shell- isn't a VE bodyshell. It had to be shortened severely to fit the Project Blueprint wheelbase- on the VZ wheel base, for the 'common floor pan' also based on Ford design.)

They have Dunlop control tyres but also have Bridgestone on the front guards.

Strange.

Whether it be hot or cold conditions, high speed or tight circuits, the Dunlop tyre has excelled for competition use. The logistics of supplying 9,000 tyres to the V8 Supercar race teams in any given season is an enormous.
