2004 HSV Clubsport R8 5.7 V8 from Australia and New Zealand
A superb racing machine
I have had no problems with this car at all.
I have had five HSVs and this is the best by a country mile, and that includes a VT GTS. The car is better then having a wive. Not only does it look awesome, the power and handling are superb. If you are looking for a car to attract attention this is the baby. I have only owned it for a month and I cannot fault it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The HSV is a nice cruiser however I believe that it chugs a lot of fuel for the power. A standard R32 GTR is on par or faster and has much more room for power upgrades.

Yeah, but not everyone wants a skyline.
Most of the skylines I have seen have been thrashed to buggery and not all that practical for family use (2dr models).
Anyway HSVs go fast enough - why would we need cars to go any faster on our roads?
