Harvest Automobiles launched the five-car line-up from the Australian muscle car marque’s E Series 3 range – the GTS, Grange, Senator Signature sedans, Clubsport R8 Tourer station wagon, and Maloo utility vehicle.

All vehicles feature General Motors’ LS3 6.2-litre V8 engines with power outputs ranging from 317kW to 325kW (425 to 435bhp) at 6000rpm and 550Nm of torque at 4600rpm. Coincidentally, these engines are identical to the ones found in Chevrolet’s Corvette and Camaro SS models.

On Friday, select members of the public and media were treated to the HSV Driving Experience, where they put the GTS and Maloo through their paces in 0-100-0km/h runs and slalom courses under the watchful eyes of Australian V8 Supercar drivers Garth Tander and Greg Murphy. They were then treated to two hot laps of a makeshift track at the Changi Exhibition Centre in a Holden Racing Team V8 Supercar.

“I have long been familiar with Holden Special Vehicles, and when we were looking at expanding our line-up of brands I felt it was a great opportunity. I am very confident that the car culture of Singapore will be very excited about this niche offering,” said Mr Daniel Au, managing director of Harvest Automobiles.

Niche it is indeed – starting prices for the HSV range begin at $318,000 for the Maloo and go all the way up to $338,000 for the GTS.

Despite the steep prices, Mr Au added that Harvest Automobiles have already sold their first allocation of HSVs.
