As production of HSV’s legendary two-door sensation, the Coupé, enters its final phase it is set to be given the ultimate send off. This final iteration carries all the world-class credentials of the current Z Series model (including the HSV-exclusive 6.0 litre LS2 V8 producing a sizzling 297kW @ 6000rpm and 530Nm @ 4400rpm) and is bolstered by an array of distinctive sporting and luxury highlights. Called the ‘Signature Coupé’, this limited edition model is one megastar whose autograph is not to be missed.

Only 70 will be built and these will be the very last Coupés to flow down the HSV production line. As a result, the conventional HSV individual vehicle number system, which begins with build number one and counts upwards, is being reversed. Therefore, it will actually be a ‘countdown’ with the final Coupé off the line to be badged number one.

In the tradition of HSV limited edition models, the ‘Signature Coupé’ is packed full of exclusive styling cues, premium performance features and desirable appointments. All 70 will come in the ever-popular Sting Red paintwork which, in this instance, has been enhanced with unique ‘Gloss Black’ accenting on the front and rear facias and ‘Signature’ badging on the rear deck lid. Shades of the awesome GTS-R show car can be clearly seen in the intricate design of the striking new 19-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, which come complete with premium Yokohama tyres.

HSV’s AP Six-Piston Brake System brings standout braking performance to match the standout appearance. Still one of the most powerful braking packages fitted to any road car it features six-piston front callipers acting on huge 362mm cross-drilled and grooved rotors and at the rear four piston callipers and 343mm cross-drilled and grooved rotors.

Inside, the usual Coupé standard features (including full leather trim, climate control air-conditioning and Blaupunkt audio system) get a further lift with the addition of an HSV Sunroof, unique ‘Signature’ floor mats and the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity.

In recognition of the fact that these ‘end of an era’ models will quickly achieve collector’s edition status with many buyers, each of the 70 cars comes with a unique owner’s framed certificate.

Exceptional value for money is an HSV hallmark and ‘Signature Coupé’ is no exception – the recommended retail price of this ‘last of a true legend’ model has been set at just A$83,990 (+ORC).
