Holden Special Vehicles Continues To Taunt Us With Awesome Cars For 20th Anniversary


As General Motors' sole brand in Australia, Holden's lineup gets most of GM's better products, like the Cruze, Captiva (a re-badged Saturn Vue) and 6 varieties of the Holden Commodore, formerly known as the Pontiac G8. While GM claims that Cadillac is ready to go head to head with the Germans, in truth, the G8 was the closest GM has come to making a car as good as a BMW.

Our G8 was essentially a Holden Commodore SS, a fairly standard model in its home market, despite having a 6.0L, 361 horsepower V8, but in Australia, customers can opt for a Commodore that's been breathed on by Holden Special Vehicles, a division similar to Mercedes-Benz's AMG outfit, or BMW's M division. The "base" model HSV Clubsport, has been selected for a special edition to commemorate the groups 20th anniversary. Only 100 cars will be produced, featuring a unique leather interior, sport suspension package, 20" wheels and special decals echoing the original Clubsport's graphics package.

Power remains the same, but that's ok with a 425 horsepower 6.2L LS3 V8 engine, straight line acceleration will be so rapid that bystanders won't be able to tell that your car is any different from a standard car.
