Walkinshaw enhanced E3 HSV LPI Clubsport with 3inch bimodal exhaust launch & drive by-HD
Please note video footage is best viewed in 720p/1080p HD and was taken
during the new year holiday break on a quiet outer suburban road to ensure
the safety of others. The launch was performed on lpg and comp mode was
selected to prevent wheel spin. Drive by shows how quite the Exhaust can be when cruising and when you open
it up past 3800rpm mark the sound that it makes when the vacuum operated
valves open up with the bimodal system.

VL Walkinshaw club leaving with style...
My girlfriend and I were driving down Powers Road in Seven Hills on the
weekend and we came across a heap of Walkinshaw Commodores. As the cars
were leaving the car park some pleasantly surprised us with a few burnouts.
Thanks guys!! :o)
2014 HSV GEN-F Clubsport R8 SV engine sound and 0-100km/h
2014 HSV GEN-F Clubsport R8 SV engine sound and 0-100km/h. Head over to
the full review.
2014 HSV GEN-F Clubsport R8 SV
6.2-litre V8 with SV enhancements
340kW and 570Nm
Six-speed manual, rear-wheel drive with limited-slip diff
0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds (as tested)
FG XR6 Turbo 0-200
FG XR6 turbo 0-200. Factory standard.
Rolling on factory 19" rims, Toyo T1R. Brand new tyres, so grip is
fantastic. Usually it would wheelspin to 60, stuffing up the gear change,
but this time it was nice and smooth.
0-100: 4.9 seconds
0-200: 16.1 seconds
80-120: 2.5 seconds
Eased off a little after 200, was contemplating going to the 240 limiter
but the private racetrack had a corner coming up so I canned that idea.
Can't wait to start modding it.
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.
