HSV chose the 2008 Sydney Motor to launch two new models â€“ the â€™40 years of GTSâ€™ and the Senator Signature SV08.
First appearing on the HK Monaro in 1968, the Gran Turismo Sportivo (GTS) nameplate has been part of the HSV range since its return to the market in 1992 in the form of the 200kW VP GTS. Since then, it has represented the pinnacle of the HSV line-up, until the recent introduction of the W427.
To commemorate 40 years of GTS, just 100 specially released 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.
Priced from $80,170, 40 years of GTS is available in Sting Red and Heron White only.
Twenty years on from the SV88, Holden Special Vehicles has also released a limited run of 50
HSV Senator Signature SV08s. The Senator Signature SV08 introduces the new TR6060 manual gearbox to the HSV range. The TR6060 will become standard across the HSV model line-up later this month.
Production is limited to 20 manual and 30 automatic Senator SV08 models priced from $82,700.
