Australian Superpower

Some might ask why we would build a car that brings true race-track performance to the road. It’s simple. Because we’re HSV and we can.

Taking the iconic GTSR nameplate to its most sophisticated and powerful conclusion, is the GTSR W1. Carbon fibre fender vents, a carbon fibre airbox, an Aeroflow Performance rear spoiler with carbon fibre upper and distinctive W1 badging let the world know you’re about to unleash something incredibly special.

Filling every inch of the car’s engine bay is a hand-built, 6.2 litre, supercharged LS9 Generation IV alloy V8. The pinnacle of 30 years of HSV engineering, this fire-breathing powerplant is fitted with titanium connecting rods and inlet valves, a dry sump oiling system, and a supercharger with twin four-lobe rotors that pumps 2.3 litres of air per revolution. The result is a mind-blowing 474kW of power and 815Nm of torque.

On hand to make the most of all that power is a close-ratio Tremec TR-6060 (MH3 spec.) 6-speed manual transmission that’s been specially designed to optimise track performance and improve driveability.

The GTSR W1 also boasts 20”x9” (front) & 20”x10” (rear) SV Panorama forged alloy wheels finished in Matte Black and wrapped in specially selected Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R* track tyres that help deliver incredible traction, blistering standing starts and outstanding mid-corner grip. Put simply, the GTSR W1 is as close to a supercar as it gets.

A unique W1 I.D. plate along with W1 badging on the key fob, sill plates and headrests let you know you’re stepping into the cockpit of a machine that’s been designed to deliver race-track exhilaration.

Once inside, 8-way electrically adjustable HSV Podium front seats finished in Alcantara with diamond-quilted stitching deliver the kind of driving position and support that you’d expect in a race-car. Adding to the supercar feel are an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and gear lever that deliver enhanced grip and control.

But it’s when you fire up the supercharged LS9 engine and the specially calibrated bi-modal twin exhaust system roars to life that you know you’re in for one hell of a drive. And not just because of the incredible power and torque at your disposal. The GTSR W1 boasts a SupaShock suspension system that is the ultimate high-performance package. The unique dampers offer the lowest frictional losses of any damper readily available. The result is exceptional handling that enables the car to devour even the sharpest corners with ease.

Adding to the GTSR W1’s outstanding cornering abilities is a world-class braking system. Boasting forged 6-piston AP Racing monoblock calipers with massive 410mm front rotors, the system delivers leading-edge brake modulation and pedal feel.

The GTSR W1 is HSV’s road-legal race-car.

*While these tyres are suitable for use in damp/wet conditions, HSV recommends the vehicle should be driven with caution and driving conditions respected, as under these conditions, the tyres may not offer the same level of grip as standard passenger tyres.
