In 1988, Holden Special Vehicles rose from the ashes of Holden Dealer Team to create high performance vehicles based upon more road going Commodore.
Today, HSV thrives, and has been responsible for some utterly bonkers four door sedans, utes and more. Today is a special day for HSV, though, as the 85,000th HSV leaves the assembly line.
So, what’s next for HSV? The brand has stated it believes its Holden partnership will continue on, despite the local, rear-wheel drive Commodore ending production in 2017. There’s also the very good chance for a reborn GTS-R, and quite possibly a few other surprises before Holden manufacturing closes up shop for good.
