The final Commodore-based model has rolled off HSV’s assembly facility in Victoria, drawing to a close the company’s 30-year history of modifying the Australian-built Commodore.
Fittingly, the final car to roll off the line was HSV’s most powerful model ever, a 470kW GTSR W1 finished in “Light My Fire.” Specifically, the car was build number 275/275 of Australia’s total allocation, but HSV intends to retain the final GTSR W1.
“For all at HSV, this is a time for great reflection on what the company has been able to achieve to date,” said HSV Managing Director, Tim Jackson.
“Any success we’ve enjoyed has been directly attributable to our passionate staff, our dedicated dealer-body and of course our loyal fans who have helped build this brand through its 30-year journey.”
With production of the Australian-built Holden Commodore all wrapped up, HSV-enhanced vehicles will take on a new shape in 2018 with two new models.
“The last 30-years have set a wonderful foundation for future growth. With our recent launch of the Colorado SportsCat, together with our commitment to bringing to market key Chevrolet models including the iconic Chevrolet Camaro, the future is looking very bright”, he said.
HSV has recently moved into a new, more modern facility in Clayton South, where production of the Colorado SportsCat, and conversion of both the Chevrolet Silverado and Camaro, will take place.
