HSV ClubSport R8 SV Black edition
11th July, 2011
Holden Special Vehicles has announced details of a
new limited edition range – the SV Black Edition.
Based on the E Series 3 range launched last September, the SV Black Edition will be available in
ClubSport R8, Maloo R8 and ClubSport R8 Tourer guise.
The “darkness” of this limited edition starts with the exterior, with matt black paint-outs on
the front and sides combining with the “Vector” bonnet scoops and side vents to immediately
communicate a unique edge.
All HSV SV Black Edition vehicles receive an all new, twenty inch forged and staggered SV
Performance alloy wheel finished in gloss black. These are complemented by HSV’s performance
suspension on the ClubSport R8, as well as HSV’s Bi-Modal exhaust and HSV’s 317 kilowatt, 6.2
litre, LS3, Generation 4 V8 to deliver exceptional road holding and powerful street appeal.
HSV’s General Manager of Sales, Darren Bowler, said the SV Black Edition was sure to excite
HSV’s customer base.

“The SV Black Edition is an exceptional offer. I believe this is one of the best looking
limited edition vehicle’s we have ever produced at HSV. The matt black paint outs combined with an
all new, forged alloy wheel and subtle badging gives these vehicles a truly unique HSV look. I am
confident these limited edition models will become true collectors items. Our Dealer network is
excited about the SV Black Edition and will be taking pre-orders from July 1” said Bowler.
The interior features a unique finish on the console, instrument panel and steering wheel while
special edition sill plates, Onyx leather trim, matt black badging and a subtle lip spoiler on the
ClubSport R8 complete the package. A unique build plate is also fitted to every vehicle to identify
membership to this very exclusive range.
HSV’s Chief of Design, Julian Quincey, said much of the inspiration for the styling cues came
from existing HSV customers.
“We know our customers love our mix of performance, technology, and unique styling. For the
SV Black Edition, we have taken our unique styling to another level and created what we believe is
one of the best special editions we’ve ever produced,” said Quincey.
Available in Alto Grey, Nitrate, Sting, Heron and, of course, Phantom Black, the build of the SV
Black Edition is limited to just 100 ClubSport R8’s, 100 Maloo R8’s and 25 ClubSport R8 Tourer’s.
The SV Black Edition will be on-sale in September.
