2017 HSV GTSR W1. if you’ve been awake a while you may not have heard of the w1 but this will get your attention it costs a cool one hundred and sixty nine thousand nine hundred and ninety dollars before on-road costs only 300 of being built and they are basically sold out so 170 thousand dollars might sound a lot for a Commodore.

but you’re getting a hell of a lot that’s unique about this car you’re getting the 6.2 liter supercharged LS 98 with 474 kilowatts you get the trofeo are super sticky travail are Pirelli tires he’s got six pot four hundred and ten millimeter.

Front brakes do an awesome job of pulling up and super shock dancers replacing the standard MRC suspensions, at least super shock dampers are strain developed and they used the v8 supercars they’re super trick.

OS 9 is a real masterpiece in this guy its core accelerate and the noise booms into the cabin you can hold first gear because of the tall gearing all the way to ninety nine kilometers an hour amazing credit performance.

HSV claims to 2017 HSV GTSR W1 can come between or to 100 kilometers an hour in just 4.2 seconds and across four hundred meters in a frag over 12 seconds those are serious numbers

the Trofeo are Pirelli tires are incredibly sticky they provide massive bread and the super super shock damper while perhaps liking the low speed medium speed speed ride comfort that you might like for cruising when you’re getting a bit serious that definitely helped provide the balance forĀ 2017 HSV GTSR W1 needs to get along the road nice and fast.

and a special word about those AP racing brakes they are consistent and confidence-inspiring every time inside the 2017 HSV GTSR W1 is a typical modern day HSV trimmed in Alcantara better with supportive sports seats a thick flat bottom steering wheel and the driver preference doll so you can change settings for such things as exhaust note and steering way.

probably goes without saying that the 2017 HSV GTSR W1 is not the first choice in the world for your average day-to-day driving but once you get out on the open road it’s a different story.

this is a complete vehicle it showcases both the fundamental engineering of the Commodore by Holden and the innovation of HSV that has produced such a memorable drive on the widening roads of the dandenong have no question it excels the same will undoubtedly be true on any sporting road or track.

Beautiful place isn’t it and this is a beautiful car it’s loud it’s proud it’s potent it’s oh so involving to drive it’s right in the heart of the great Aussie muscle car tradition is it the greatest salty muscle car of them all well that’s a pub debate we can have the years to come but I can say that as far as v8 Commodores produced built and engineered by HSV goes this is the best of a lot we’re sad that an air is coming to an end but at least it’s ending with one hell of a bang and not a whimper.
