    Since it first appeared in June 1990, the ClubSport nameplate has been the backbone of the HSV brand. Affectionately known as the ‘Clubbie’ it’s been responsible for introducing many performance vehicle enthusiasts to the HSV family.

    Today’s Y Series 2 ClubSport continues that tradition with a terrific value-for-money/performance equation. Standard features include an HSV enhanced 285kW 5.7litre V8 engine, HSV Touring 3 suspension, a twin piston HSV Performance Brake package with ABS, and an interior packed with sports highlights. So when, for a very limited time only, HSV offers a Special Edition ClubSport model it’s guaranteed to be a red hot proposition.

    The pulse will quicken at the sight of the distinctive body package (without accent colours) that creates a clean, aggressive appearance, along with the HSV specific 18-inch ‘Chrome Shadow’ sports alloy wheels. From behind the wheel the driver can enjoy the HSV floor mats, HSV centre console sports binnacle (displaying volts and oil pressure), as well as the delights of an HSV Short Shifter (on manual models) and race-inspired HSV Performance suspension upgrade.

    However, pulses are set to hit the redline with the unique gift that accompanies every ClubSport Special Edition – an HSV Helmet mounted on a timber plinth and personally signed by Mark Skaife and Todd Kelly. Each has been hand painted by world-renowned automotive mural artist, John Kral, from Kral’s Creations. A specific ClubSport Special Edition build plate and special build certificate, signed by Mark Skaife and Todd Kelly, complete the package and ensure that, like previous special edition HSVs, it will be a very collectable proposition.

    There is great news in the price, too. While the value of the additional features comes to approximately $3000, the RRP of a ClubSport Special Edition is just $890 above a standard ClubSport. The bottom line is that, with very limited numbers available, it’s only going to be the lucky (and quick) few who have the pleasure of owning this exclusive HSV model.

    The ClubSport Special Edition is available from late June at HSV Retailers.

    I'm not entirely sure how many will be released, from what I've seen they haven't released that information.

    I will attempt to dig up that information.
