Available in three variants - ClubSport, ClubSport R8 and ClubSport R8 Tourer, each vehicle receives a raft of new technologies and features including the availability of an optional power and torque upgrade to 340kW and 570Nm.

The exterior styling make-over starts at the front end of the ClubSport which is now distinguished by a new, twin-nostril grille and a deep fascia, with updated Daytime Running Lamps that can now operate in unison with the headlamps.

Updated styling also extends to the wheels with all-new, 20" cast flow-form alloys (8.5" at the front and 9.5" at the rear) with a silver finish. Wrapping the wheels are Continental 5P tyres that deliver improvements in performance through better grip and ride comfort.

At the rear, a new decklid is complimented by a body-coloured lo-line spoiler and distinctive HSV LED tail lamps. The "diffuser" rear fascia - now signature across the GEN-F range - houses the bold, quad exhaust outlets.

The interior has undergone a complete make-over with new sports seats, instrument panel, clusters, gauges, centre console and appliques' delivering a premium look and feel.

From a powertrain perspective, the new ClubSport carries over the 6.2L LS3 Generation IV V8 from the E-Series 3 model which generates 317 kilowatts of power and 550 Newton-metres of torque. The powertrain is matched to a TR6060 Tremec 6-speed manual gearbox with the 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission with Active Select available as an option.

Matched to the powertrain are HSV's new AP radical forged 4-piston brake calipers with larger ventilated discs and larger brake pads. These improvements lower unsprung mass, improve pedal feel and deliver greater stopping power via an improved strength-to-weight ratio and caliper rigidity.
