Here's an HSV you can't have: the ClubSport R8 Special Vehicle Response, or SV-R for short, and it's been put together especially for the Queensland Police Service.
Power for the 6.2 litre V8-powered ClubSport R8 SV-R has been boosted to a GTS-matching 325kW and 550Nm of torque, and while HSV is keeping mum on the specifics, it says there is also an exclusive and unique suspension package tucked underneath.
“Our engineers worked closely with the Queensland Police Fleet Management Branch to get a clear appreciation of their critical safety and operational requirements” Darren Bowler, HSV’s General Manager Sales.
“After an extensive period of evaluating their needs, and testing by the Queensland Police, the SV-R is the best possible outcome”.
Four of the yellow SV-R cars have been delivered to the Queensland Police fleet, each emblazoned with the force's "Fatal 4" message: don’t drink and drive, don’t speed, don’t drive when fatigued, and always wear a seatbelt.
Now... how long until we see these high-powered SV-R cars join their turbocharged VL Commodore BT1 "Interceptor" predecessors on the private market?
