Lucky, local journalists have already had a crack at the final, most powerful HSV to ever be produced. That vehicle is the 2017 HSV GTSR W1.
Specifically, Car Advice climbed aboard the bonkers machine for some laps with an HSV racing instructor. While seeing the car on track is all fine and dandy, the real love affair is just how the GTSR W1 sounds. It’s simply lovely.
The 6.2-liter supercharged LS9 V8 engine is paired to a reworked bi-modal exhaust after HSV received comments stating the outgoing exhaust wasn’t loud enough. Well, we think they’ve fixed those issues. Even the engine noise itself sounds utterly sublime from the cabin.
Take a listen in the video up above.
