Holden announced today that its special vehicles range also known as HSV will receive the new GM LS3 engine. The 6.2 liter V8 engine capable of developing 425 hp at 6000rpm will be available in dealerships from April. The engine is currently used on the Chevrolet Corvette but it will also fit the new Pontiac GXP.
Although the engine increased its power it also delivers a slight fuel economy improvement using 14.5ltr/100km in manual mode and 14.4ltr/100km in automatic mode. The HSV cars will also receive new 20 inch wheel option available for $2500 and new colour pallete.
