Holden Special Vehicles has released a limited edition Senator to coincide with the 2009 Melbourne International Motor Show.

The Senator nameplate, which stretches back to the VP Senator in 1992, will maintain its purpose in the ‘luxury-performance’ market while adding the exclusivity of a Limited Edition run to this heritage.

“Our Senator Signature model has introduced a whole new range of customers to the HSV brand and reminded existing customers what luxury-performance is all about,” said HSV Managing Director Phil Harding. “Today’s release of the E-Series Senator is designed to appeal to customers seeking the performance our company is renowned for in a subtle – yet identifiably HSV – package, with a very attractive price point.”

The Senator comes with leather onyx seats – featuring the Senator logo embossed on the front and rear headrests – as standard and is available in Heron, Sting, Phantom, Nitrate, Karma, Voodoo and Evoke.


It is powered by HSV’s LS3 317kW V8 engine, with HSV performance suspension and rides on 19-inch billet silver Senator wheels over silver brake callipers incorporating the black HSV logo.

The Limited Edition Senator is priced from $69,990 (RRP) with just 30 manual and 59 auto examples to be produced.
