Holden Special Vehicles has given its ClubSport R8 the limited edition treatment to commemorate the ClubSport badge’s 25th anniversary.

And the good news for HSV fans is that you won’t have to hand over any additional cash to get your hands on one; the pricing matches the ‘regular’ ClubSport R8 at $73,290 plus on-road costs.

That amount buys the standard six-speed manual model, while the six-speed automatic version with paddle-shifters starts from $75,790.

You may need to be quick however, as the 25th Anniversary model is limited to 100 cars in Australia and just eight for New Zealand customers.

Above the standard R8, the 25th Anniversary model brings 20-iinch SV Rapier alloy wheels in gloss black, a Hyperflow Performance rear spoiler, quad-exhaust tailpipes with ‘shadow-chrome’ tips and ‘pitch black’ highlighting around the exterior.

Four paint finishes will be available - Heron, Phantom, Sting and Nitrate - and each car will be individually numbered with an ID plate and unique sill plates.

Owners will also be reminded they’ve purchased the limited edition model every time they turn the key via the Enhanced Driver Interface (EDI) start-up screen.

Features familiar to ClubSport R8 customers include the 340kW LS3 Generation IV alloy V8 engine, AP Racing forged four-piston brake callipers and HSV Performance seats wrapped in Onyx leather trim.

“Along with GTS, ClubSport has been one of the mainstays of the HSV line-up through its proud history,” HSV Managing Director, Tim Jackson, said.

“We’re sure the added value offered with the 25th Anniversary ClubSport R8 will be well received by our fans.”

HSV’s first ClubSport arrived in 1990 and was based on the VN Commodore. Performance features included Holden’s own fuel-injected 5.0 litre V8 producing 180kW/400Nm, along with 16-inch alloy wheels and FE2 sports suspension.

The 2015 HSV ClubSport R8 25th Anniversary is available to order now, with production due to commence this month.
