It was instant love amongst Aussie motoring fans when Holden pulled the covers off the top-secret Commodore Coupe concept back in 1998. It was a moment that led to the return of one of the most iconic names in our automotive history: the Monaro.

But when Holden Special Vehicles released its high-performance variants in 2001, there wasn't a Monaro badge to be seen. Due to trademark conflicts between the two entities, the HSV two-doors were referred to as HSV Coupes, available in either GTO or top-dog GTS spec.

The naming issue aside, it is easy to see how these burly HSV muscle cars have become appreciating classics over the two decades since their launch. The folks who were young enough to remember the original Aussie muscle cars of the 1970s were now older and wealthy enough to want a fast, brightly-coloured V8 machine of their own. HSV's GTO and GTS hit the market at the perfect time.

For sale is one of the top of the range HSV GTS 300 Coupes, Build 212 presented in stunning Quicksilver with Black leather trim and showing a genuine 16,484 kilometres from new. Of course the GTS comes with the original Owners manual, log books and HSV Compendium.

The flagship of the HSV Coupe range, the GTS features the all matching numbers 300kW (402hp) Callaway C4B mated to a Quick Shift T56 Tremec six speed manual gearbox and a 3.9.1 HydraTrak limited slip differential . HSV reckons the GTS will accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 5.5 seconds, and cover the quarter mile in a blistering 13.3 seconds.

Befitting a car of such stratospheric performance, the GTS features one of the biggest tyre and brake packages ever seen on an Australian made car at the time. Massive 19" 5-spoke alloy wheels shod with high performance Pirelli P-Zero tyres have the unenviable task of handling the GTS's prodigious power. And the brakes are equally huge: 373mm cross drilled, grooved discs with six-piston AP Racing callipers are fitted up front, and 343mm cross drilled, grooved discs with 4-piston calipers are fitted in the rear.

The suspension also gets a boost, biased further towards performance and handling at the expense of a softer, more luxurious ride.

The GTS is externally distinguished from the GTO by the contrasting colour accents on the front and rear bumpers and side skirts. A low-key roof spoiler sits atop the rear windscreen, and Bosch parking proximity sensors are fitted to the rear bumper.

The GTS gets its own unique instrument cluster surround, along with a shift light and buzzer, alloy-like steering wheel and stainless steel pedals. The interior is similar, but the GTS gets more equipment and different inserts on the leather seats.

Given their provenance as the last Aussie-designed and built V8 rear-drive coupes, the values of HSV's Coupes are heading north although they are still pretty cheap when you consider people are asking three times a HSV GTS for a Bathurst spec HK and HT GTS Monaro. And we think a HSV might just be a little easier to drive on a daily basis!
