HSV wants to make a statement in Australia, the market where it is seen as the leading performance car manufacturer. Wanting to celebrate its first 25 anniversary, the Australian brand introduced a special edition called the ClubSport R8 model.
 
The new model offers a very long list of standard and optional equipment. Under the hood we have a LS3 Generation IV alloy V8 engine, that delivers 455 hp. The 25th Anniversary ClubSport R8 will be available with either a TR6060 Tremec 6-speed manual transmission or the optional 6L80E 6-speed automatic with Active Select and Paddle-shifters.
 
The sports car is using AP Racing forged 4-piston brake calipers, HSV Performance seats in Onyx leather trim and advanced technologies like Enhanced Driver Interface (EDI) and Driver Preference Dial.
 
The limited edition content starts with the fitment of light-weight 20 inch SV Rapier forged alloy wheels in “Gloss Black” finish, continues with a Hyperflow Performance rear spoiler, with a range of striking “pitch black” exterior accents feature on the fender vents, mirror scalps plus the door, bonnet and boot-lid badges. Bold quad exhaust outlets with shadow-chrome tips complete the exterior styling make-over.
 
The vehicle’s exclusivity is further enhanced through the fitment of uniquely branded sill plates, an I.D. plate and EDI start-up screen, while each vehicle will be individually numbered.
