HSV unveils 40th Anniversary GTS

HSV GTS fq

Holden Special Vehicles has launched two new models at this year’s Australian International Motor Show “We re celebrating 40 years of GTS with a special commemorative model as well as unveiling a Senator Signature SV08”, Managing Director of HSV Phil Harding said. “The SV08 introduces the new TR6060 manual gearbox to our range, which will become standard across the HSV model line-up later this month.”

40 years of GTS HSV is commemorating 40 years of the first Australian Gran Turismo Sportivo (GTS) with the release of a limited edition GTS. First appearing on a HK Monaro in 1968, the GTS nameplate has been part of the HSV lexicon since its return to the market in 1992 in the form of the 200kW VP GTS and has since been the hero car-line for the company.

To commemorate 40 years of GTS, just 100 models will be built, featuring black heritage stripes, tyre pressure monitors and a commemorative ’40 years of GTS’ logo embedded on the headrest, brake calliper, sill plate and rear panel of the model. They will be priced from $80,170 ($91,000 NZ) and available in Sting Red and Heron White only.

Twenty years on from the SV88, Holden have released a limited run of 50 HSV Senator Signature SV08s. Production will be limited to 20 manual and 30 automatic and they will be priced from $82,700 ($93,800 NZ).

The luxury SV08 receives exclusive lower paint-outs, sill plates and additional chrome accenting on the side mirrors and door handles. The 20 inch Pentagon wheel is standard on this model. The manual SV08 receives the new Tremec TR6060 gearbox and they will only come in Nitrate (Silver), Sting Red and Voodoo (Blue).
