According to HSV Managing Director Phil Harding the HSV ClubSport GXP and HSV Maloo GXP represent an outstanding opportunity for HSV to complement its existing line-up with a limited edition entry level vehicle.

"We receive lots of enquiries about introducing a model to sit as an entry level to our brand and the GXP program provides us this opportunity. I have always said that in order for a car to wear the HSV badge it needs to satisfy three criteria - Performance, Handling and Design. Clearly these cars tick all three boxes."

GM Holden and HSV shared engineering resources in the development and validation programs for the Pontiac G8 program, which coincided with the development of the LS3 engine for the HSV range, which debuted in May 2008.

Tim Jackson, General Manager of Marketing for HSV, said the initial reaction from HSV Dealers has been extremely positive and that they expected demand for the new models to be strong from the outset.

"We have made the appropriate updates to ensure these vehicles are uniquely HSV, yet still deliver for a customer looking for that entry level price point. The limited edition ClubSport GXP (400 units) and Maloo GXP (350 units) represent an opportunity for us to attract new buyers to the HSV brand."

The ClubSport GXP has a recommended retail price of $59,990 (m), and the Maloo GXP has a recommended retail price of $53,990. Auto variants attract a $2000 premium. The ClubSport GXP and Maloo GXP will go into production in February 2010.
