HSV ClubSport R8 gets 25th anniversary limited-edition special

The venerable HSV Clubsport has come a long way. Launching in 1990 with the VN Commodore, the first examples derived 180kW and 400Nm from Holden’s 5.0 litre V8.

HSV Gen-F Commodore: new series name for fastest Holdens

After owning a previous VE SV6 and a VF CALIAIS V V8 I have now just picked up my new HSV CLUBSPORT R8 SV so I've joined the cashed up bogans club. Not every really been a rev head but have always loved the look and sound but just felt I would like a small piece of history...

2009 HSV Clubsport Review

Speed, Reliability and a bit of poke at the rear wheels is just the start of the long list that you will find in the 2010 HSV R8 Tourer. With the option for Alcantera genuine Italian leather seating, which only compliments the excellent suspension and steering, the HSV is everything you want in a car. The key word there being 'want', which brings me to pointing out some disappointing features...

2013 HSV Clubsport R8 Review

HSV have spent their time developing the new Gen-F platform very well. It's a generational leap that puts HSV up there with the typical Euro picks. The well-established LS3 platform and drivetrain is carried over from the VE series, with minor tweaks, delivering an excellent ride...
