31. GEN-F2 ClubSport R8 Track Edition (2016)

+

Inspired by HSV’s racing heritage and fitted with HSV’s 340kW, 6.2 litre LS3 V8 engine, the ClubSport R8 Track Edition features styling, content and performance enhancements that are sure to resonate with true motor-sport enthusiasts.

Styling is based off HSV’s supercharged ClubSport R8 LSA model but with limited edition content including 20” “Blade” forged alloy wheels finished in Dark Stainless, and yellow AP Racing forged 6-piston brake calipers, both, until now, the sole domain of HSV’s iconic GTS.

Pitch black fender vents and mirror scalps, black door surrounds and shadow-chrome quad exhaust tips deliver added aggression while the vehicle’s track credentials are further enhanced with upgrades to its performance suspension. Spring and damper rates have been stiffened to reduce body-roll and further improve corner-entry response and, with the Hyperflow Performance spoiler, further accentuating the vehicle’s track bias.

The interior, too, mirrors the model’s supercharged counterpart but with leather-clad sports bucket seats and a suede-wrapped sports profile steering wheel. Unique exterior badging, sill and I.D. plates, and individual build numbers, further enhance the vehicle’s exclusivity.
