2017 HSV R8 Maloo LSA

This HSV will make you green with envy. In fact 410kW green with envy. HSV's 30th anniversary Maloo R8 LSA was a fitting way for HSV to farewell the beloved Holden Ute. The word Maloo translates to the Aboriginal word for thunder. And this car delivers that and much much more!

With the Aussie invented ute going all the way back to the 1930s and the once ubiquitous Holden ute now nearly disappeared from our roads, this Spitfire green monster is a great way to stamp your mark on the highways and byways while disregarding all subtlies.

There's no doubting that we've come a long way from the humble VG Maloo that started it all back in 1990 offering a 180kW/400Nm V8 with some degree of brashness. But this green eyed monster has certainly moved the bar with it's stonking 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine, code named the LSA cranking out 410kW of power and 691Nm of torque combined with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 30 Year edition adds six-piston AP brakes front and rear ($3,495 extra) and is also fitted with torque vectoring technology to sharpen turn-in response. As well as unique 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped with Continental rubber, 8.5 inches wide at the front and 9.5 inches wide at the rear. The exhaust sounds are embellished with a bi-model exhaust - the wondrous sounds sure to elicit a wry smile on your dial.

The Maloo is capable of zero to 100km/h in about 4.5 seconds. It feels every bit that fast, making effortless progress to the redline. According to road test reports, "The Maloo’s prodigious sound is a dynamic skillset which wouldn’t look out of place in a two-door sportscar. HSV’s swansong ute offers impressive levels of lateral grip, turn-in response and outright poise around the flowing Eastern Creek layout making the Maloo a lot of fun to throw around sideways".
