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

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.
