In Europe, the high performance version of Opel models are sold under the OPC name, in Britain Vauxhall opted for VXR and, in Australia, they have Holden Special Vehicles. Their latest creation is a special edition GTS built to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary. This special edition GTS will be limited to only 140 units: 125 for Australia and 15 for New Zealand.
The HSV GTS is powered by a 6.2 liter, LS3 V8 engine (same used in the standard GTS) that delivers a total of 435 HP, but it will be set apart by a series of special features. These include 20" forged alloy wheels with Satin Graphite finish, and unique ’Vector’ hood scoops and side vents.
The model will also be offered with standard equipment that includes magnetic ride control suspension, navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity, blind-spot monitoring, and a bi-mode exhaust.
