HSV extends Senator range with special edition model

HSV Senator fq

At the Melbourne Motor Show, HSV has announced the release of a special edition Senator super-sedan. A less-expensive ( $69,990 AU — about $90,000 NZD) alternative to the pricier, more lavishly-equipped Senator Signature that launched in 2006, the special Senator will be limited to a total of just 89 cars. Thirty of these cars get manual transmissions; the rest will have automatics.

While the new Senator makes do without features such as the Magnetic Ride Control suspension found on the Senator Signature, the most important part — the 6.2-litre LS3 V8 lump under the bonnet — remains. It’s good for 317 kilowatts (425 horsepower) and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque, which is more than enough juice to generate a serious cloud of tyre smoke.
