New HSV GEN-F Range Includes Australia's Fastest Production Car Ever


The presentation of the redesigned 2014 Holden Commodore VF Series (offered as the new Chevrolet SS in the States) earlier this year has been followed up with the release of the Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) flavored editions of the car known as the GEN-F range.HSV touts the GEN-F as one of its most important updates ever as it features "the most significant exterior styling makeover since E-series" and includes the most powerful performance production car ever built in Australia, a country known for its muscles cars, the 577hp (585PS / 430kW) GTS. Unfortunately, it may also be the last of its kind as GM is considering a front-wheel drive replacement for the next Commodore due in 2017.
The GEN-F range includes Commodore-based sedan and station wagon models, utes (two-door,pickup truck version of the Commodore) and a long-wheelbase version built on the Caprice named the Grange.
We'll start with the flagship GTS sedan that brings the thunder with its 6.2 liter supercharged LSA V8 engine producing 577hp (585PS / 430kW) at 5,900 rpm and 740Nm (546 lb-ft) at 4,200 rpm.
At the bottom of the range you'll find the Clubsport sedan and SportWagon, and the Maloo Ute that are all motivated by a 6.2-liter V8 churning out 425hp (431PS / 317kW) at 6,000 rpm and 550Nm (406 lb-ft) at 4,600 rpm.
The Clubsport R8, Tourer R8 and Maloo R8, all feature a slightly more potent 6.2-liter V8 rated for 436hp (442PS / 325kW) at 6,000 rpm producing the same peak torque of 550Nm (406 lb-ft) at 4,600 rpm.
The Caprice-based Grange gets a tweaked 6.2-liter V8 delivering 456hp (462PS / 340kW) at 6,000rpm and 570Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque at 4,600rpm.
All engines and models are offered with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or an optional 6-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels. Pricing for all GEN-F models will be announced closer to launch later this year.
