You might be wondering how many Commodore-based HSVs are left in showrooms and warehouses across Australia, considering it’s now been months since Holden shut the factory doors.
Well, there’s good news if you were worried you wouldn’t be able to buy a new HSV.
A HSV spokesperson says while there are still a few hundred HSVs yet to be sold, a recent increase in demand means they’ll all likely be gone before 2018 reaches its mid-point.
“I’d expect them to be gone at the end of April, so only a couple of months left,” HSV’s product and marketing manager, Damon Paull, tells MOTOR.
“We began runout in February last year, and saw a massive spike in sales at that point.
“We did also produce about 10-12% more cars through the year in 2017, so there were more vehicles to meet demand.”
While there are still enough GTS and GTSR models to go around, the Grange has gone by the wayside with no more of the LS3-mounted-Caprices available.
Paull adds that there are no more W1s left either. But we’re confident most avid MOTOR readers are aware of this fact.
His advice for anyone wanting a HSV but still yet to buy?
“Anyone still wanting a Commodore-based HSV will need to get in fast. It’s a piece of Australian automotive history, and there are limited numbers left.”
