The first all wheel drive (AWD) sports coupe to be produced 'Down Under', the Coupe 4 is the dynamic result of a creative collaboration between HSV and Holden powertrain, chassis engineering and design specialists.

The Coupe 4 is equipped with an HSV-enhanced LS1 V8, matched to a four-speed automatic transmission. Power is transferred to the tarmac through all four wheels via a traction control-based HSV Quad Drive permanent all wheel drive system, which is calibrated to provide exceptional grip in wide range of surface conditions. A torque split of 38 per cent front and 62 per cent rear gives the Coupe 4 a sporty rear-drive bias.

To accommodate its all wheel drive powertrain componentry, increased track and larger wheels, the HSV Coupe 4 requires extensive sheet metal and chassis system modifications. These modifications will be carried out on a new, dedicated production line at Elizabeth before the vehicles are transferred to the Holden Special Vehicles facility in Clayton, Victoria, to be hand-finished- HSV Coupe 4 production is scheduled to begin in May 2004.
