Holden Special Vehicles Celebrates 20th Anniversary With Limited Edition ClubSport R8


Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) has unveiled two new models, including a special commemorative ClubSport R8 as part of its 20th Anniversary celebrations at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney today.

Managing Director Scott Grant said the release of a 20th Anniversary ClubSport R8 celebrated the heritage of the luxury and performance car company.

“The birth of HSV and the reveal of the very first VL Group A SS Commodore – commonly referred to as the ‘Walkinshaw’ – took place at the 1987 Sydney Motor Show. From those humble beginnings, HSV has gone on to produce over 55,000 vehicles and dominate the world of Motorsport,” Scott Grant said.

“It is only fitting that today we unveil a limited edition model to commemorate the company’s 20th Anniversary,” he said.

The 20th Anniversary ClubSport R8 is limited to a run of just 100, with a number of unique features including;
  • Unique sandstorm colour scheme,
  • Unique 20th Anniversary sill plates,
  • GTS black accenting,
  • Leather performance seats featuring the 20th Anniversary logo and;
  • Chrome shadow wheels and brake callipers finished in black and gold.
The model retains the 307kW LS2 V8 engine, performance brake package and aggressive HSV styling that has contributed to the company recording twelve consecutive months of unsurpassed sales success in the company’s 20 year history.

“The company has had an outstanding 12 months, but in typical HSV style we’re looking to the future and making sure we continue to produce products that Australians and the world love to drive,” Scott Grant said.

The 20th Anniversary ClubSport R8 goes on sale from October at HSV Dealerships across Australia and is priced from $65,990 (m).

Why couldn't this have been the G8?!?!

Or, why couldn't they at least have taken some of this cars more aggressive cues and adapted them to the G8, such as the better tailights, or more aggressive fender vent or better wheels?
