The VS Senator is one of those iconic early model HSV’s. It had an incredibly appealing Ian Callum styled body kit together with the famous throaty Aussie V8. This combination was the reason the VS range of HSV’s is regarded as one of the most sought after modern muscle cars today.
The VS Senator continued on from the standard set by the VR Senator with its universally popular body kit featuring a deep front apron, styled rear bumper, and solid side-skirts. Together with the tough as nails drivetrain featuring either the 185 kilowatts 5 litre V8 or the optional 215 kilowatts 5.7 litre stroker, it was a winning combination. The VS update, however, added new ten-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels, a different front grille, and a passenger side airbag amongst other features.
The VS range also brought with it a new selection of eye-catching metallic paint options like Silver Mink, Panther Mica, and for this particular model, the stunning Cherry Black. This distinct finish at first appears to be a metallic black but on closer inspection, is infused with a burgundy pearl which really makes any VS HSV stand out in the sun, and the model is no different!
The paint isn’t the only special feature about this Senator though. We’ve also added the optional leather interior and 6-speed manual transmission mated to the fire breathing 215i 5.7 litre stroker engine. For anyone who has driven an early HSV with this engine will testify, they did not hang around when the left pedal was planted!
