    Rumorpile: HSV To Be Rebranded To Walkinshaw Next Year

      A big change is possibly afoot at HSV

    Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) has been the creator of some of the maddest Holden performance vehicles like the GTSR W1 which features a 6.2L supercharged V8 with 636 horsepower. But the HSV name could be a thing of the past.

    CarAdvice has learned that HSV will be changing its name to Walkinshaw beginning next year. This information first was revealed by a source earlier in the year and was confirmed by three HSV dealers this week. This change means future HSV products will wear the Walkinshaw nameplate - possibly beginning with the Colorado pickup.

    HSV was established back in 1987 as a joint-venture between Holden and Tom Walkinshaw Racing. This replaced the Holden Dealer Team (HDT) special vehicle operation being run by famed Australian racing driver Peter Brock.

    The name change could also hint that the company could import other models from the GM portfolio such as the Camaro and Corvette.
