Holden Special Vehicles, Walkinshaw Automotive Group appoint new boss as GMSV ramps up

And although Holden Special Vehicles branding will disappear with Holden showroom signage by the end of the year, the company says it will preserve three decades of history of HSV cars and continue to support them with parts and service.
