HSV W427 launched

HSN today officially revealed the W427 , a model that was first unveield at the Melbourne Motorshow in ‘showcar’ format. The car began production at the company’s Clayton based facility this week and sales of the seven litre 375kW ‘Supercar’ have begun in dealerships around Australia. The car is limited to only 427 units, and the entire 80 units for 2008 have been pre-sold and will retail for $155,500, plus on road costs.

The W427 is powered by a 7.0 litre LS7 V8 engine with specific HSV calibration that delivers 502 hp. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual TR6060 high strength transmission.

It features: Front Driving lamps, Projector headlamps, 3 piece rear spoiler in carbon fibre, Unique W427 front fascia, Quad exhaust outlet with active bi-modal rear mufflers and Metallic Paint.


No GM car will be recognized as supercars as long as they use the damn LS variants. Heres an idea, Develop a new engine for once.

Once again Holden gets it right. This time using the big Corvette V-8. It may share a platform with the Camaro (and it doesn’t have the history) but this is the GM car to have. I’m moving to Australia damnit!
