Top-of-the-line model from Australian Holden tuning specialists HSV, the SV300 is the flagship of the HSV range. Based on the current Series II Holden Commodore, the SV300 follows the American tradition of muscle cars by sporting a GM-designed, Callaway-enhanced Generation III 5.7L C4B all-alloy V8 engine generating a tasty 300kW of power (whew!). Putting power to the pavement through a six-speed manual transmission, the SV300 is definitely one hell of a Holden. Very desireable, only 100 of these bad boys will be made for the 2001 season.
