2016 HSV Clubsport R8 LSA review

For many, HSV is the most loved car brand in Australia. Unfortunately there will be no more, which is exactly the reason I decided to buy a Gen-F2 R8 LSA. I have owned a few different HSV’s in my life and I couldn’t miss out on the chance to have one of the last ones. I have owned a VT Clubsport in Midnight Purple and the HSV XU8 a few years back...

2015 HSV GTS review

Rewind back to 2015 and I was looking at buying a HSV GTS in April 2015, and the HSV dealers wanted about $104,000 drive-away (which I thought was outrageous). So I waited until October 2015 when the Gen-F2 models were appearing in the showrooms. I went in on the last day of October and was able to negotiate $85,250 drive-away on a Gen-F1 GTS that was in stock at the dealer...

2014 HSV Clubsport R8 review

This vehicle is an SV variant. Having owned a VY II SE and a VZ Clubsport, this vehicle caught my eye and, well, it got the mind and heart racing. The only things I dislike, and still do until I carbon-fibre wrap them, are the in-built exhaust tips. Aside from that, the car is comfortable, rides superbly and is powered nicely...

2014 HSV Clubsport R8 review

A quick note before I jump into the review. In case you haven’t read any other of my Owner Car Reviews, I’m a 14-year-old from Sydney, and I have a passion for cars. As I’m sure you know, the Holden factory in Elizabeth closed in October of last year. It was a very sad moment, especially for my dad...

2013 HSV GTS review

So, I have just sold not only my first ever HSV, but also the first ever Holden I have ever owned. I have never written a review about a vehicle before, but for some reason I feel compelled to do so about my experiences with the HSV GTS. My car before the GTS was a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, and it was fantastic...

2015 HSV Clubsport R8 LSA Review

This year we purchased a 2015 Clubsport LSA for our small family and found it to be perfect for us. Comfortable and spacious enough for the kids and an absolute hoot to drive for dad. Easy steering with the selectable modes on the electrically-assisted steering at the shops, head turning looks and jealous stares all around...

2013 HSV Senator Signature Review

This is absolutely the best motor car I have ever owned! Looks, comfort, power and handling. It looks great on the road, has outstanding pickup and efficient brakes. Handling totally predictable. On country trips, specifically Sydney to Barellan and return, I have a best average fuel consumption of 7.7 litres per 100 kms. I LOVE this car, I purchased it on 10/10/13...

2015 HSV Clubsport R8 Review

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...

2008 HSV Maloo Review

A quick history lesson, Ford is claimed to be the first company to produce an Australian "Ute". This was the result of a 1932 letter from the unnamed wife of a farmer in Victoria, Australia asking for “a vehicle to go to church in on a Sunday and which can carry her pigs to market on Mondays”...
