Just as a starter to wet your appetite, the HSV Maloo R8 Ute is powered by their 6.0 liter 307kW LS2 V8 engine as well as being fitted with the AP Racing four piston brake package. Other features include a distinct sheet moulded compound (SMC) rear tailgate, gore and suede HSV performance seats and Group A Walkinshaw inspired side skirt. If you are still not happy you can upgrade with the optional performace grade which features “leather” HSV performance seats and 20” wheels.

The Maloo R8 will retail from AU$59,990 and will hit dealerships this month.
