supercharged engine under wraps because it is continuing with the Corvette-based 6.2-litre V8 for the rest of its model line-up, including the Clubsport, Senator and Grange sedans and the Maloo ute.
There will be three engine outputs available from the regular V8— 317kW, 325kW and a new 340kW/570Nm Performance Pack option

The 340kW is standard on the Senator and Grange luxury sedans and the Clubsport R8 wagon and an option on the Clubsport R8 sedan and Maloo R8 ute.
When Carsguide asked HSV to comment on the new line-up the company maintained its 6-speed manual or auto; RWD
4.5 seconds silence. Even top-level Holden dealers, informed about the new model only in the past few weeks, were astonished HSV had kept such big news so secret for so long.
HSV will launch its new Clubsport and Maloo line-up in June. The GTS starts production in August.
