Here it is, folks. Right on schedule, Holden has revealed full details on its reborn range of HSV Gen-F models. The bulk of the new HSV machinery will go on sale next month, though the baddest of them all, the supercharged HSV GTS, will reportedly be delayed until September.

The GTS may well be worth the wait, however, as its 430kW supercharged V8 engine (known as the LSA, the engine makes 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque in the US-market Chevy Camaro ZL1) will make this the fastest Holden ever produced. Lower-level ClubSport models will come equipped with a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 with 317kW of power. A ClubSport R8 sedan with a 325kW version of the engine and a ClubSport SV with a 340kW engine will also be available.

Bodystyle choices range from a sedan to a wagon and, of course, an El Camino a Ute called the Maloo, since this is Australia after all. Long-wheelbase Grange model and an upscale Senator model will be offered with slightly more toned-down exterior looks for those who'd rather blend in to the crowd. Pricing has yet to be announced, but you're welcome to scroll down below to watch a video before checking out all the details from Holden here.

      I look at the Chevy SS and then I look at this and I think, "what the **** GM?"

        I look at the Holden and think what the **** GM? I look at the HSVs and think what the **** Holden? Why would someone drop so much money on a car that looks like the standard Commodore.

      I\'ve said it for years now, GM USA needs to gather up their engineers and send them to Holden/HSV and have them get schooled on how to design and make a modern performance car, interior and exterior. HSV has had awesome cars for years now, and GM USA needs to bring them to The US (leave off the old GM nameplates like the GTO) and market them as new performance cars to the general public (not just police specials). Sheesh, this should be Business 101.

      GM just needs to bring the Holden line-up to North America.

      I love it! Wish they would just start selling Holdens as a brand here in the US.

      This is what our SS should look like. No Chrome.. just a tad bit on the In Your Face attitude and a hint of bat **** crazy tossed in. If I seen this in my rear view mirror I would be moving out of the way very damn quickly.

      The Senator model's bumper/grill combination would have been the best fit for the Chevy SS.
