We know the HSV Gen-F2 ClubSport R8 Tourer was revealed alongside the entire Gen-F2 range weeks ago, but we merely wanted to take this space and highlight how awesome this thing is.
There’s a bit of a running joke among automotive media, seeing most of us are die-hard auto enthusiasts, with varying ranges of purity along the scale. If the automotive media were to build its perfect vehicle it would be a wagon, with a ginormous engine paired to a manual gearbox and be some sort of obscure color.
That’s the joke, but the Gen-F2 ClubSport R8 Tourer is the reality.
We couldn’t fill this space with enough pleas for this vehicle to be sold in the United States. It’s functional, yet fast with its standard LSA 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. It’s offered with a manual gearbox. It looks aggressive, yet will most likely age quite well. What more could one ask for from a vehicle?
If you’re the automotive media, not a whole lot more, according to the joke, but we’re sure there are plenty of fans who would make sure the HSV ClubSport R8 Tourer would be next great cult following in the United States.
