Και ενώ πρακτικά μιλάμε για εκδόσεις, το εμπρός μέρος τους είναι κοινό και αποτελείται από έναν αρκετά επιθετικό προφυλακτήρα, αεριζόμενο καπό, επανασχεδιασμένες πλαϊνές ποδιές, μεγάλο πίσω διαχύτη και νέου σχεδιασμού ζάντες 20 ιντσών στα Maloo, ClubSport και GTS.

Αλλαγές έχουν γίνει και στο τομέα της ανάρτησης, με την εταιρία να υπόσχεται καλύτερο κράτημα και άνεση για τους επιβάτες.

HSV LAUNCHES NEW GEN-F2 RANGE

Australia’s leading performance car manufacturer, HSV, today released details of

some major upgrades to its GEN-F range.

To be known as “GEN-F2”, the range revisions include:

? The fitment of a 400kW / 671Nm 6.2 litre Supercharged LSA V8 engine to its

ClubSport R8, ClubSport R8 Tourer, Maloo R8 and Senator Signature models

? Revised suspension on the new LSA-powered models

? Revised front and rear fascias

? New contoured side-skirts

? New 20” alloy wheels on GTS, Maloo and the ClubSport models

? New bonnet vents

? Two new colour options

The addition of the Supercharged LSA engine to the ClubSport R8, Maloo R8 and

Senator Signature models is sure to be well received. HSV first launched this

powertrain in its hero model – GTS, at the introduction of the GEN-F range, and its

extension to the majority of the HSV line-up ensures HSV can confidently lay claim to

having one of, if not the, most powerful performance production car range available

in Australia.

But the revisions aren’t just limited to the LSA engine and the revised suspension

settings. Extensive styling upgrades to the front fascia, rear diffuser and side-skirts,

together with the introduction of new 20” alloy wheels on the Maloo, ClubSport and

GTS models, will ensure the GEN-F2 range is easily identifiable. “Our objective with

the GEN-F2 program was to enhance performance and design in equal measures”, said

HSV’s Managing Director, Tim Jackson. “The changes we’ve made to exterior styling

evolve the current design language and give the GEN-F2 range distinctive street

presence”, he said.

The GEN-F2 range will consist of ClubSport R8 LSA, ClubSport R8 Tourer LSA, Maloo R8

LSA, Senator Signature, Grange and GTS.

The company also confirmed that its 340kW LS3 engine will continue to be available

in its luxury long-wheel-base Grange, and in both Maloo R8 and ClubSport R8, the

latter two models to be available in Q1, 2016. “Given strong dealer feedback, we’ve

taken the opportunity to concentrate limited pre-Christmas production and

availability on the new LSA models through the launch phase”, said Jackson.

“We’ll look to provide further details on the LS3-powered Maloo R8 and ClubSport R8

models early in the new year.”

The GEN-F2 range is the most significant upgrade to the HSV line-up since the launch

of the GEN-F range in June, 2013.

“Our challenge, at HSV, is to continually push the boundaries. Standing still is just not

an option”, said Jackson. “We’re confident that broadening the availability of the

Supercharged LSA engine to the majority of our range, in addition to the styling

enhancements we’ve introduced with GEN-F2, make this the most exciting range

we’ve ever offered”, he said.

The company confirmed that production of the GEN-F2 range will commence early

October, with vehicles due to arrive in HSV showrooms later that month.
