In support of the launch of their Christmas Road Safety Campaign, the Queensland Police Service has unveiled four unique Holden Special Vehicles they hope will play a very visible role in the fight to make their roads safer.

In conjunction with the Queensland Police Fleet Management Branch, HSV has developed the unique, high performance vehicles that will be used extensively as highway patrol vehicles in Queensland Police enforcement operations over the Christmas period and beyond.

Based off the popular ClubSport R8 model, the “SV-R” model (short for Special Vehicle Response) has been developed by HSV’s engineering team exclusively for the Queensland Police Service.

The four ClubSport R8 SV-R vehicles feature a unique engine and suspension package and are emblazoned with prominent livery to promote the “Fatal 4” message – that is, don’t drink and drive, don’t speed, don’t drive when fatigued, and always wear a seatbelt.

“Our engineers worked closely with the Queensland Police Fleet Management Branch to get a clear appreciation of their critical safety and operational requirements” said Darren Bowler, HSV’s General Manager Sales. “After an extensive period of evaluating their needs, and testing by the Queensland Police, the SV-R is the best possible outcome”.

The vivid yellow “Fatal 4” vehicles are highly visible and designed to stand out on the roads as a reminder to all Queenslanders that driver and passenger safety should always be a priority.

The ClubSport R8 SV-R is unique with its 325kW power output (the same as the GTS model) and “SV Enhanced” Performance suspension to handle the load carrying requirements.

“Safety on the roads is paramount and never more so than at this time of the year. HSV is pleased to be able to play an active role in supporting the Queensland Police’s “Fatal 4” campaign”, said Mr. Bowler.
