Official pricing and final specifications will be confirmed closer to the sale date, however HSV has said it will feature equipment levels similar to the ClubSport R8.

The Tourer will also feature the new 317kW LS3 V8 engine, which is now standard across the HSV fleet.

HSV has so far only released one official image, with the aggressive rear-end treatment yet to be unveiled.

Although HSV has not yet revealed specific plans, there is also the possibility the Tourer could join its sedan cousins in overseas markets under the Chevrolet and Pontiac namesakes.
