I just want one.

HSV first opened its doors to the public in February 1988 after unveiling the first ‘Walkinshaw’ at the Sydney Motor Show in 1987.

The establishment of the partnership between General Motors Holden and the British Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) group was a major coup not just for performance car connoisseurs, but also for the local industry. The operation began with a clear set of goals and a carefully structured business plan. The aim was simple - to maintain the tradition of Holden-based performance sedans originally established by Peter Brock’s Holden Dealer Team. Over the years, HSV built an array of modified vehicles, most of which were based on Holden models powered by either Holden or GM sourced V8 engines. For 30 years HSV mastered a very specific vehicle fit for Australian tastes and purposes: the V8, four-door performance sedan that people aspired to own. In 2017 a new agreement was struck between GM Holden and HSV to bring a whole new breed of vehicles to customers in Australia and New Zealand from across the GM empire. The company is now in an exciting era of vehicle enhancement and re-engineering that sees the same entrepreneurial spirit that has driven HSV for over 30 years and will continue to guide the company for the next 30 years and beyond.

We have a great product, that competes in the highly competitive Australian Automotive market. Each new product adds between 350 – 600 new components. We are proud of the level of Design and Engineering happening in Australia.

The finest driver’s car the country has ever produced, the HSV W1.

GTSR Range: Historic High-Performance


The new GTSR range isn’t just an Australian muscle car milestone, it’s the ultimate expression of Australian high-performance. Only the fortunate few will be able to get behind the wheel of one of these exclusive machines and claim a part of Australian high-performance history. But for those who do, the thrill will last a lifetime.

Some might ask why we would build a car that brings true race-track performance to the road. It’s simple. Because we’re HSV and we can. Taking the iconic GTSR nameplate to its most sophisticated and powerful conclusion is the GTSR W1.

Put simply, the GTSR W1 is as close to a supercar as it gets.
