Holden's HSV W427
Holden is celebrating HSV's 20th anniversary with the release of the
fastest car ever produced in Australia - the HSV W427. Unveiled for the
first time at the Melbourne Motor Show 2008, the HSV W427 (427 represents
the engine's size in cubic inches) marks a new era in Australian muscle
cars with a Chevrolet Corvette sourced 7.0-litre LS7 engine producing 370
kW (500 hp) of power and 640 Nm of torque. The engine is assembled by hand
specifically for use in the Holden-based sedan and features an advanced
dry-sump lubrication system required to match the performance potential of
the car.The production version should complete the 0 - 100km/h sprint in
around 4.7 seconds thus catapulting the local hero car into a select group
of high-performance sedans which features the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E
63 AMG, BMW M5 and Audi RS6. The HSV W427 will go on sale towards the
middle of 2008 priced somewhere between $140,000 and $170,000.
