From the ultimate road presence to personalised interiors and sports power the HSV range has landed at Wagga Motors.
HSV sales manager Nathan Comerford said the range has something for everyone.
“The Silverado is built for a purpose and is the ultimate tow vehicle with a big road presence,” he said.
“The Camaro is limited stock and it’s the sports V8 while the Sportscat caters to the dual-cab market.”
Wagga Motors has been selling HSV since 2007 with the move to importing and remanufacturing the cars rather than building them in Australia being the biggest change during that time.
“It’s a massive transition for HSV,” Mr Comerford said.
“The cars are remanufactured from left-hand drive to right-hand drive at the HSV plant down in Clayton South.
“HSV take a normal car and personalise it to make it more of a unique vehicle.
“The seats are different, the cars handle different especially the Sportscat.
“They used to be based off a Commodore and all V8s now there are three different markets.”
Wagga Motors have already sold two Camaros with one on order.
The Camaro is a very limited build with Wagga Motors only allocated two last year.
“They’re not produced in as higher volume as other vehicles,” Mr Comeford said.
“We couldn’t even get one here for a picture, that’s how rare they are.
“Hopefully the next one won’t sell before it gets here.
“We want to have one to show people.”
The Camaro and Silverado have always been available to import but the buyer would have to do the entire process themselves.
“HSV went to Chevrolet and showed them what they wanted to do in terms of remanufacturer,” Mr Comerford said.
“Once Chevrolet saw that they were happy to warrant the vehicles.”
Wagga Motors has already sold seven Silverados with two more on order.
“The Silverado is the most popular of the three,” Mr Comerford said.
“People who buy it know what they’re buying.
“Caravans these days aren’t getting smaller and some speed boats are the size of small ferries.”
