The all new LS3 6.2 litre Generation 4 V8 engine takes performance to a new level. Power has increased to an incredible 317kW @ 6000rpm with torque climbing to 550Nm @ 4600rpm. World-class HSV technology employs an intelligent engine control system to extract the maximum brute engine power and torque every 6.25 milliseconds. Tubular 4 into 2 into 1 extractors and an HSV exclusive limited slip final drive ratio of 3.7 (manual) or 3.27 (auto) help deliver the power straight to the road.
There’s a feeling of total confidence knowing that the biggest, most advanced braking system HSV has ever engineered, can at the slightest touch perfectly control such a powerful beast. Monstrous front and rear brakes have been specifically designed to optimise stopping power and reduce braking distance. In dry conditions, a mere 36 metres is all the distance required to stop from a speed of 100km/h. Front brakes boast 365mm x 32mm ventilated and grooved discs, with aggressive sports-styled 4 piston calipers in Holden Racing Team red with silver logo. Wide rear tyres combine with a bigger rear brake – 350mm x 26mm ventilated and grooved discs and 4 piston rear calipers. Advanced brake pad material and rotor designs are engineered to evenly distribute force to each brake, providing a safe, responsive feel.
