The HSV GTS 25th Anniversary limited edition has been revealed ahead of the brawny local sports car’s launch at the 2012 Sydney motor show later this month.

While there are no upgrades to the special edition’s 325kW/550Nm 6.2-litre V8 engine, HSV says the 25th Anniversary GTS – priced from $84,990 – scores more than $7500 in extra features for just a $2000 premium over the standard GTS.

Headlining the package is a set of brand-new lightweight 20-inch forged alloy wheels finished in Satin Graphite, which saves 22kg over the standard GTS wheel set and reduces the car’s unsprung weight by eight per cent.

The ‘vector’ bonnet scoops and side vents are finished in matching Satin Graphite.
