After HSV announced their new special 25th Anniversary edition line up a few months back, we suspected they may be holding out on releasing the GTS till the upcoming Sydney Motor Show. And we were right. The 25th Anniversary GTS is well worth the wait though, building on an already impressive list of standard features, including a 325kW, 6.2L engine.
The cars feature a new design light-weight, 20-inch forged wheel in a satin graphite finish, which reduces overall weight by 22kg over the stock GTS wheel package. The vehicles “Vector” hood scoops and side vents, also receive the satin graphite treatment. The previous option only 6-piston brake package will now come as stock, as does the side blind zone alert.
Just 15 of the vehicles will find their way to New Zealand, and they should land around the end of October all going to plan. Each will be equipped with a personalized build plate, along with 25th anniversary ornamentation including seat embroidery, exterior badging, sill plates, and EDI “start-up” screen. With the $7600 worth of upgrades, plus the vehicles collectable appeal, the price is an impressively low $104,900, just $3000 more than the regular GTS. Not bad at all if you ask us!
