Holden Special Vehicles today unveiled the all new E Series 2 (E2) range featuring several Australian production car firsts, a significant new design theme and a number of new driver features for Australia’s favourite luxury and performance car company.

Managing Director Phil Harding said today was a proud day for HSV.

“We decided to make a major investment in new product, features and performance, in a time of unprecedented economic turmoil,” Phil Harding said.

“The new E2 range is yet another opportunity to demonstrate the engineering and design excellence of HSV,” he said.

E Series 2 highlights include;

-The return of the GTS to the top of HSV’s performance pedigree with 325kW of power, hi-flow intermediate exhaust system with bi-modal mufflers, re-calibrated Magnetic Ride Control with stiffer springs and 8.5 inch front wheels as standard,

-The addition of stunning Daytime Running Lamps throughout the range, giving HSV owners greater differentiation than ever before,

-Fuel economy savings of up to 4.5%,

-A dramatic new frontal shockwave graphic, with different interpretations across the model line-up,

-A number of new driver enhancements including ‘Competition Mode’ Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Launch Control (manual only) and Extended Cruise Control,

-A range of new options under the banner of ‘SV Enhanced’ including six piston front brake calipers for GTS, a new ‘Performance Suspension’ for Clubsport R8, bi-modal exhaust on ClubSport R8 sedan ’ Clubsport R8 Tourer, Maloo R8, Senator Signature and Grange,

-No price increase on ClubSport R8, Clubsport R8 Tourer and Maloo R8, while GTS and Senator Signature rise by just $700 [1].

Phil Harding said HSV’s new 325kW GTS continued the forty year tradition of the nameplate being at the pinnacle of Australian performance motoring.

“To be able to deliver a sophisticated, striking modern day interpretation of the GTS performance saloon – at an accessible price – is a tribute to our entire team,” he said.
