Holden Special Vehicle GTS : A High Performance Australian Muscle – Holden Commodore


HSV GTS 2010

This is HSV GTS, the aussie favourite Australian Muscle. You might be asking again. This is Holden Special Vehicle Gran Turismo Sportivo, a car based on Holden Commodore also rebrand as the Pontiac G8 in the states. For short, this is a 4 door high performance car comparable to BMW M5. As this car is only available in Australia , it is about AUD 75,000 (That’s around RM 215k) where as a BMW M5 cost about AUD 240,000. Now that’s about 3 times more the price with a similar performance figure.

HSV GTS is powered by GM’s 6.2 litre LS3 Generation 4 alloy V8 engine, with an output of 317 kilowatts (425 hp) of power and 550 newton metres (406 ft·lbf) of torque. As a result, 0-100 in below 5 seconds. The same engine that is fitted into a Chevrolet Corvette.

With aggresive bodyworks, fenders and bumpers – the HSV GTS is a hardcore performance sedan. Performance with number of seats point of view, it is a definate value (performance) for money package.
