HSV GTS E-Series - accelerates from 0-60 mph in less than 5 sec
HSV’s latest range of performance sedans can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 secs, making them the fastest Australian-made cars ever.
HSV opted for unique tail lights and a more radical look - make the so-called E-Series range the most radical from the performance specialist to date. But this unique and radical look costs more to develop than the last four model updates combined, although HSV won’t divulge exactly how much.
The E-Series range is designed to further separate the more expensive HSVs from the Commodores they’re based on.
The flagships of the E-Series line-up, the GTS and Senator Signature, will also get a Magnetic Ride Control system - or MRC - similar to that used in the $600,000 Ferrari 599 GTB, the second-generation Audi TT and various Cadillacs.
The E-Series range of HSVs also get the biggest wheels and tyres ever specified for a locally-made vehicle, with aggressive looking 20-inch alloy wheels part of the $74,990 deal for the flagship GTS.
