Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) has revealed its Gen-F model lineup, based on the VF Commodore but packing plenty more power under the hood.

The lineup consists of the Clubsport sedan, Maloo pickup, Clubsport R8, Maloo R8, Senator Signature, and the ZL1-powered GTS. The Clubsport and Maloo models are powered by General Motor’s 6.2-liter, LS3 V8 engine with 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. Standard on those models is four-piston brake calipers, launch control for manual-equipped vehicles, bucket seats, and an eight-inch infotainment system.

The R8 variants feature the same motor tuned to 436 hp and also have upgraded tech such as a heads-up display, forward collision and blind-spot warning systems, and LED taillights. There is also an SV Enhanced package that adds a new air intake to boost power to 456 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.

The HSV Senator Signature is the luxurious model of the lineup and is equipped with the 456 hp version of the LS3. A more subdued bodykit accents the exterior while projector headlights and a subtle trunk spoiler adds to the aesthetics. Luxury upgrades inside include power front leather seats, heated front seats, nine-speaker Bose audio, and dual-zone climate control.

Lastly, the HSV GTS is powered by the Camaro ZL1′s 6.2-liter V8 supercharged engine with 577 hp and 546 lb-ft of torque. An aggressive body kit sets it apart from the rest of the lineup along with six-piston front brake calipers, a quad-tip exhaust setup, leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather sport seats, metal pedals, and nine-speaker Bose stereo.

Too bad the Chevy SS doesn't have tail lights, it would have been one of the things to modernize the SS even more and make it look more premium, all we get are these...

led taill lights on the HSV gen-f gts look a bit on the ricey side, rather not have them but led tail lights like OEM SS tails but just led's in the housing, no halogens.

I agree with you for the amount the Chevy SS will be sold at I would have imagined it to have better housing than some old halogen bulbs. The Holden HSV tail lights are on the ricey side but still better than the SS.

On the plus side of things aftermarket LED tail lights will be possible since there's the VF commodore. I can see us having to order VF Commodore aftermarket LED tail lights if no manufacture or distributor wants to do it for us in the U.S.

Then there's always the option of making your own LED lights or getting someone to do it for you.
