HSV’s 29-year celebration

HSV’s ‘30 Years’ models have been somewhat shrouded in all the GTS-R and W1 tyre smoke.

But the last blast for the reardrive Zeta platform brings some worthy updates, including an extra 10kW and 20Nm for ClubSport, Maloo and Senator Signature models as well as 5kW for the GTS, the latter courtesy of a K&N air filter. There’s the usual array of 30 Years stickers and badges as well as matte black highlights and the inclusion of the torque vectoring previously exclusive to the GTS. As for the 30-year reference, it’s a little cheeky given HSV’s first car was delivered in 1988, though the brand’s been around since ’87.
