HSV Coupe Reviews
I hear the low, threatening thunder of the V8 motor behind me. The coupe passes me, reaches me and vanishes readily and easily around a corner, offering me just the briefest glimpse of a three-piece spoiler, quad exhausts and some quite exceptional tail-lights. What I've only observed is the HSV Coupe.
The HSV Coupe, that's also known as the HSV Coupe Signature GTO within the HSV E-series lineup, is really one of the nicest-looking autos traveling. The HSV Coupe
is just as great as its bigger brothers such as the Clubsport and the Senator, with the zest and zoom we have begun to anticipate in the HSV range.
And there is little doubt about it: the HSV Coupe is one really quick auto. This topnotch powerhouse is really capable of packaging a force of 297 kW of oomph at 6000 rpm, that's only lacking the redline at 6500 revs. The torque figures are also amazing: 530 Nm at 4400 rpm. What does all this add up-to: 0-100 in 5.1 seconds within the fourspeed automatic and 5.2 seconds for the sixspeed manual.
If you are fortunate enough to get in the HSV Coupe, you'll be quite so comfy in the leather seats you will not need to go out again. Your passenger within the front (rear passengers can be got by the HSV Coupe in easily enough using the electric slide rear entry, too) also offers 8 - way adjustable chairs and lumbar support. However once you are sitting comfortably, there might be a couple more devices and dials inside the HSV Coupe you could correct to your liking before heading out to determine what the HSV Coupe can-do. Including the Blaupunkt radio/6-disc CD system with ten speakers, equalizer and speed-sensitive volume - you'll get the sound controls to the leather-bound steering-wheel and also the multifunction display enables you to see the thing you have to understand. The automatic climate control is just another gadget to correct based on your tastes before starting off, but you could also utilize the priority important that, upon unlocking the automobile, can automatically place everything to your own liking (and for another person) for climate control, trip computer, audio system, speed alarm, antenna height, device dimmer and also the headlampsoff time delay. The dashboard in general is a gorgeous piece of content with distinctive white dials that, combined with rawlooking alloy pedals, complement the darker tones of the HSV Coupe's inside.
When you are in command of the energy and fire that lurks underneath the bonnet of the HSV Coupe, you'll have to get all the security functions underneath the sun. The security features also double as the engineering masterpieces which make the HSV Coupe a wish to drive and also make the management clear and fine. And also the passive safety features are protected and Intelligent: fullsize front airbags, side airbags, antisubmarining ramps, seat backs and active head restraints, and pretensioner seatbelts. And when the pyrotechnic pretensioners deploy, then the HSV Coupe goes into crisis mode, turning the dome lamp on, unlocking the doors and reducing the motor and also the gas.
