A New Standard for Aussie Performance

Holden Special Vehicles took centre stage at the Sydney International Motor Show with the unveiling of a classy all wheel drive coupe that showcases Australian performance engineering prowess.

The 'all paw' HSV Coupe 4 is evolved from Australia's favourite sports car, the Holden Monaro, which made its own high-profile debut at the Sydney Motor Show two years ago.

The first all wheel drive (AWD) sports coupe to be produced in this country, the Coupe 4 is the dynamic result of a creative collaboration between HSV and Holden powertrain, chassis engineering and design specialists.

Holden Special Vehicles Managing Director, John Crennan, said technologically advanced vehicles such as the HSV Coupe 4 and the Avalanche AWD wagon, also unveiled in Sydney, signposted the new directions being taken by his company and Holden as they accepted the challenge of automotive change.

The Coupe 4 is equipped with an HSV-enhanced, 366 bhp 5.7 litre LS1 V8, matched to a four-speed automatic transmission. Power is transferred to the tarmac through all four wheels via a traction control-based HSV Quad Drive permanent all wheel drive system, which is calibrated to provide exceptional grip in wide range of surface conditions.

The HSV Coupe 4 is equipped with a HSV Performance braking system comprising 336x32mm ventilated and grooved front discs and 315x18mm ventilated and grooved rear discs. Its 19x8 inch alloy wheels are shod with Pirelli P-Zero directional tyres, and HSV's unique AWD 'low ride' sports series suspension set-up delivers a flat, supple ride quality that complements its prodigious inherent handling abilities.

A torque split of 38 per cent front and 62 per cent rear gives the Coupe 4 a sporty rear-drive bias.

The comprehensive HSV Coupe 4 standard equipment listing includes LED interior effect lighting, rear park assist, eight-way electrically adjustable front sports seats with active head restraints, the driver's seat with three memory settings, driver, passenger and side impact airbags, leather-bound sports profile steering wheel, specific instrument cluster, premium 200watt sound system with 6 disc CD changer and subwoofers, dual zone climate control air conditioning, satin chrome accents and alloy pedals.

HSV Coupe 4 goes on sale in June 2004. It will be priced under AU$95,000.
