SO YOU want a new Holden Special Vehicles car but just cannot quite afford one?
HSV feels your pain and wants to help by offering the new GXP entry level sedan and ute.
The GXP slots below the ClubSport R8 sedan and Maloo ute and is, at this stage, a limited edition model with 400 sedans and 350 utes planned.
It has the same 6.2-litre V8 with 317kW and 550Nm as the ClubSport R8 and Maloo, and runs the same Brembo brakes, interior and front-end design.
The main differences can be found at the rear, where a slightly modified Commodore tail is underpinned by a different suspension set-up.
GXP models now represent a new HSV entry point at $61,990 driveaway for the sedan and $55,990 driveaway for the ute.
