Australia’s high-performance car manufacturer Holden Special Vehicles is proud to announce a special Limited Edition 20 Years of Maloo R8 to celebrate the 20th birthday of the Aussie icon.

Since its launch at the Sydney Motor Show in October 1990 the HSV Maloo nameplate has been synonymous with innovation, pioneering the segment with airbags, ABS brakes, performance braking systems, climate control air conditioning, traction control, and electronic stability control.

In later years this spirit of innovation has been evidenced by the addition of features such as launch control, competition mode ESC, and Daytime Running Lamps on HSV’s E2 Maloo R8.

The tradition continues with HSV’s 20 Years of Maloo R8.

Limited to just 100 units, 20 Years of Maloo R8 is a celebration of the iconic Aussie Performance Ute with an all-round package delivering an exclusive blend of design, performance, and technology, including;

- Unique “Vector” E-vents and hood scoops

- Spectacular 20-inch wheels in black highlight, as seen on GTS

- HSV’s bi-modal exhaust

- HSV’s Enhanced Driver Interface (EDI)

- HSV’s Side Blind Zone Alert (SBZA)

- Rear park assist with reverse camera

- Satellite navigation

The 20 Years of Maloo R8 is packed with new features and is a fitting tribute to this iconic nameplate. With its mix of performance, looks, and technology it is sure to become one of the most sought after Maloos in history.

Prices for the 20 Years of Maloo R8 will begin at $67,900 (Recommended Retail Price) for the manual.

The 20 Years of Maloo R8 is due to make its first public showing at the Deni Ute Muster in early October, and will begin arriving in showrooms around the same time.
