Introduction



There wasn’t much to separate the VP over the outgoing VN, cosmetically anyway. But that would be selling the VP short. HSV were quick to incorporate IRS and other Holden improvements into it’s own range.

The VP would see HSV clock up their 5000th vehicle, and only two years later with the same model their 8000th, the latter marked by the release of 138 special edition 5th Anniversary models – each painted in Galaxy Blue over Panorama Silver.

The Club Sport that had been introduced just prior to the end of the VN’s reign would carry over to the VP series as a no-frills Executive based V8.

John Harvey, HSV’s marketing manager and former Bathurst winner, made no apologies for the entry level HSV model; “…what we’re doing is putting the V8 performance car back into the reach of Mr Joe Average.” Although none from the Average household were available for comment, not too many were seen to object to this philosophy.

Early in 1992 HSV introduced the HSV Senator and Senator 5000i, and by August the GTS nametag was revived for another iteration of the hot HSV’s.

It may not have been a Monaro, but it was reserved for a Holden boasting a stonking 200kW 5.0 litre V8. HSV also continued the manufacture of after market HSV enhancement packages for the more humble Commodores and Statesman’s.

In all, there were plenty of HSV’s from which to choose, including the Club Sport, Sport Wagon, SV91, + Six, Maloo, Senator and Senator 5000i, Nitron, GTS, Statesman SV93, Formula and Club Sport 5000i.

I have purchased a beautifull 91 vp cluby build no:024
this baby was an ex NSW police pursuite car with a lot of great mods on it. The only problem i dont like is that when purchasing parts i get given the wrong item even after percificaly asking for the pursuite part.. out of all the cars i have owned this is by far my fav, it handles like its on rails thanks to the upgraded suspension and brakes curtisy of NSW police the only thing i have to ask is that it has a HSV10th anniversary sticker on the rear window this is a genuine sticker not a fake all the badging is legit

i;m the owner of a 1992 vp hsv clubsport built #204 i.m the 3rd owner.i've
had the clubby for two years,only has 96000km on it.privous owner
had a lot of goodies put in the clubby to further enhance performance.
i.e,alloy radiator,dba rotors.ceramic coated pacemakers exatractors,
and its has a factory five speed box,rare i guess.still looks brand new.
i was wondering whether it will become a collector item one day?

I own one of the humble HSV enhanced VP SS Commodores mentioned in this article.Model number is xx1 Build No 104. Appearence is exactly as appears in the photo of the GTS on this page. It is getting high in Ks now at 317000 but is still extremely reliable and as I travel about 1000 k a week in it it needs to be. I had to rebuild the diff upon purchase as it had been abused and I have replaced the steering rack which had a very annoying knocking noise. The engine uses no oil and still packs a good punch.
