HSV readies GTS-R revival

HSV’s secret plans to unleash a tyre-slaying 476kW GTSR on Australia, revealed exclusively in Wheels in October, appear to have taken a small step forward.

GM in the US, which holds the rights to the HSV badge, has trademarked “GTSR” in Australia, though missing the hyphen of the yellow lairy-winged VS Commodore-based original. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the original GTS-R’s release, when only 85 of the 5.7-litre cars were built. Perhaps wanting to keep a lid on the project for as long as it could, GM stalled on making its trademark application until December. re mber.
