HSV ClubSport 20th Anniversary Edition Launched

Australian carmaker Holden Special Vehicles announced today the launch of a limited edition model that marks the 20th anniversary of its ClubSport brand. The first model introduced in the range was a VN HSV ClubSport. Fitted with a 5.0-liter engine developing 241 horsepower and 400Nm, the model was available in a 410-unit limited series.

The HSV 20 Years Of ClubSport edition will be equipped with the company's performance suspension, 20 inch Pentagon wheels in Millennium silver and leather seats as standard. The model will also wear a unique decal on the rear window showing a modern iteration of the original VN CS ClubSport badge.

Other distinctive features include with LED daytime running lights and various styling accents.

”If we step back 20 years to 1990, this really was a watershed year for the HSV brand. Not only did we introduce our first ClubSport model in June but 1990 also represented our first Bathurst victory with the Holden Racing Team, who are also celebrating 20 years of success this year,” General Manager of Marketing and Communications, Tim Jackson, said in a release.

”The ClubSport has such great history and meaning within our business, and it has always been our purists vehicle - bringing track focused performance and handling to a road vehicle,”
added Jackson.

The HSV 20 Years Of Clubsport price starts at $66,690 AUD for the manual version and at $68,690 AUD for the automatic and only 100 units will ever be available. Sales are scheduled to start this month.

“With this level of value add at no additional cost we anticipate the 100 vehicles will move very quickly and good luck to the person who manages to grab No.1 in the model build,” said General Manager of Sales, Darren Bowler. “City Motors HSV in Perth recorded the highest HSV vehicle sales in 2009 and have been rewarded with the privilege of retailing the No. 1 vehicle to the lucky HSV buyer.”
