Holden Special Vehicles (HSV), GM’s in-house Holden tuner, has just revealed the limited-edition 25th Anniversary ClubSport R8 to commemorate a quarter century of the high-performance model.

Based on the then-new 1990 Holden Commodore VN model, the original HSV ClubSport featured a 5.0-liter V-8 making 241 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a sporty FE2 suspension.

The new HSV 25th Anniversary ClubSport R8 features a 456-hp 6.2-liter LS3 V-8, AP Racing forged four-piston brake calipers, HSV Performance seats in Onyx leather trim, Enhanced Driver Interface (EDI), and a Driver Preference Dial. Transmission choices include a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual or the 6L80E six-speed auto with Active Select and paddle shifters.

Exclusive features on the 25th Anniversary ClubSport R8 includes lightweight 20-inch SV Rapier forged alloy wheels with a gloss-black finish, a Hyperflow Performance rear spoiler, quad exhaust outlets with shadow-chrome tips, and "pitch black" exterior trim including fender vents and badges. Interior bits include unique sill plates, an I.D. plate and serial number, and special EDI start-up screen.

Available exterior paint colors include Heron, Phantom, Sting, and Nitrate.

Priced around $54,500 ($73,290 Aus), the HSV 25th Anniversary ClubSport R8 will begin production in July and will be limited to 100 examples for Australia, and eight units for New Zealand. Meanwhile, whose of us in the U.S. will have to make do with the Holden Commodore-based Chevrolet SS.
