    Vehicle Overview

Muscle Car Stables

Stage 2 tune with exhaust upgrade

The VX Clubsport was launched in early 2000 and featured the same V8 engine as the Clubsport VT Series II, but with an increased power output, up by 5 kW to 255 kW.

Acting on feedback from owners, HSV strove to differentiate its range of vehicles from the standard Holden offerings. To achieve this, HSV introduced more distinguishing bodykit and interior designs.

Toe-control links for the rear suspension was now fitted across the range in line with the Holden VX series update, for improved handling. The VXII update also brought with it the addition of Microdots across the range in order to reduce theft, a feature HSV refers to as HSV DNA.

Inside, the ClubSport R8 moves closer to HSV’s premium performance models with set and forget climate control and a 10 CD changer. Wraparound Performance seats with new trim colours and fabrics are shared with the latest GTS along with a myriad of extra exterior and interior trim details to set the ClubSport R8 apart.

The Clubsport R8 also fetures HSV VX R8-specific 5 spoke 8” x 18” alloy wheels with 330 mm front and 315 mm ventilated, HSV Performance brakes standard.
