Established in 1987, Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) is and continues to be Holden’s officially designated performance vehicle partner. Since its inception, it has produced a series of low-volume performance models across the Holden range, though most commonly based on the Commodore platform. One of HSV’s best-known badges is the Clubsport, which debuted as a VN-model in 1990 and continued through to the Gen-F of 2017. As the performance brand’s entry-level model, it’s also its biggest seller. Produced from 1991 to 1993, the VP-model was the second iteration of the second generation of the Commodore and introduced mainly cosmetic and feature changes to the outgoing VN-model. Semi-trailing arm IRS became standard on Calais and Commodore SS models and dramatically improved ride and handling. ABS brakes were also introduced in the VP range, while additional security included an ignition-disabling device and a driver's door deadlock. Power mirrors were also now a standard feature. With the release of the VP series, the entry-level HSV Clubsport and luxury Senator were both equipped with the 180 kW V8, while the high-performance GTS came standard with the 200kW version and HSV's premium brake package. LSD were standard across all HSV models. Clubsports continue to be popular among Australian muscle car enthusiasts and interest is now growing in all models.
