HSV Tourer on sale now

Wagon its tail: Five-door HSV arrives priced under $66,000.

Holden Special Vehicles releases the ClubSport R8 Tourer at a paltry $1000 premium

4 Sep 2008

HOLDEN Special Vehicles has released its first wagon since the all-wheel drive Avalanche five years ago, just as it promised it would at the launch of its upgraded LS3 V8 range in May.

On sale nationally at a manual price of $65,990, the ClubSport R8 Tourer is available for just $1000 more than the equivalent HSV sedan - just like the Holden VE Sportwagon upon which it is based.

HSV expects to build around 120 examples of the Tourer this year, powered by the same 317kW/550Nm 6.2-litre LS3 V8 as the rest of its E-Series range.

"We were very impressed with the Sportswagon product our colleagues at Holden have released and believe the ClubSport R8 Tourer takes the concept to the next level," said HSV general manager of sales Darren Bowler.

The HSV Tourer is the latest of just a handful of wagon models ever released by HSV in its 20-year history. Before the Adventra-based Avalanche of 2003, HSV produced just 27 examples of the VT Senator Signature Estate in 1997.
