Holden, known at the time as Holden and Frost, began as a saddle maker for horses. The company then began coach building, and eventually moved into the automotive industry making bodies for Ford before being bought out by General Motors in 1931. Today they’re mostly known in America for building Australia’s super sedan, the Holden HSV GTS.
Motor Trend’s Arthur St. Antoine met up with the magazines certified Australian Angus McKenzie for the latest episode of Epic Drives. The pair check out Sydney’s skyline from atop the Harbor Bridge before taking the 577 horsepower HSV GTS for a short road trip to the famous Mount Panorama Circuit at Bathurst, where the Holden can stretch its legs a bit. The hosts closeout with considering sending a letter to Mark Reuss to bring the HSV GTS to America, if they want to start a petition, count us in. Scroll below for the video.
