If Walkinshaw Performance’s recent 497kW/955Nm W497 supercharger pack just wasn’t enough to get your blood pumping, the tuning house is back with an even more compelling offer.

Announced today, the Walkinshaw Racing Limited Edition Supercharger Package offers as much as 550kW and 980Nm when matched with HSV’s 6.2 litre V8.

That means any of the suitably equipped E-Series and Gen-F models offered from 2006 to 2014.

In its 'standard' form, HSV's hero GTS 430kW and 750Nm - far from underwhelming and, as our review last year proved, plenty exhilirating. (But there's always room for more... - Ed.)

The deal isn’t exclusive to those halo HSVs however, with any 6.0 litre VE or VF Commodore also entitled to the upgrade with 500kW and 800Nm on offer.

“From the beginning of this process, our goal was to engineer the most powerful upgrade to date for a road car from WPP without compromising driveability” Walkinshaw Performance GM Tony Harris said.

Along with the supercharger setup, the package also includes a camshaft upgraded, selected off the back of “thousands of hours” of testing and development.

The company has not offered any performance figures for its new package, but - if it can keep traction sorted - we might expect an improvement on the GTS sedan's already impressive 4.4 second sprint to 100km/h.

Limited to just 50 examples, the supercharger pack is priced at $24,490 supplied and fitted.

For those dollars, the price of a featured-packed light car, Walkinshaw will also provide a full driveline warranty - an offer that the famed tuning house claims is an industry first for any combined supercharger and camshaft package.

The Walkinshaw Racing Limited Edition Supercharger Package goes on sale on October 15, available through the company’s national reseller network.
