HSV literally rocked the performance car pages of the nation’s top car magazines with the release of the bright XU3 yellow VS GTS/R. Marketed as the closest HSV road car you could get to its race winning Holden Racing Team cars of the 1996 Australian Touring Car championship season.

To broaden appeal in 1996, HSV released the limited edition flagship GTS-R model which came standard with the 5.7-litre V8, Tremec T56 six-speed transmission and “Hydratrak” limited slip differential (LSD) package. Available only in a polarising bright yellow colour (known as “XU-3 Yellah”) with carbon fibre inserts and large rear wing, the GTS-R engine could be blueprinted for more power.

In total, 85 GTS-Rs were produced (10 exported to New Zealand).
