The HSV GTS is a high performance luxury sedan, produced by HSV. The fundamental underpinnings are based the on mainstream Holden Commodore models of the same years. The car is powered by GM's 6.2 litre LS3 V8 engine, with an output of 317 kilowatts (425 hp) of power and 550 newton metres (406 ft·lbf) of torque. Buyers have the option of choosing either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic; the manual is capable of reaching 0–100 kilometres in 5.05 seconds and automatic is capable of 0–100 kilometres in 4.96 seconds.

E Series

Traditionally the HSV GTS has boasted a more powerful motor and drivetrain than other HSV models, however the E-Series GTS shares the LS3 V8 engine with the cheaper Clubsport and luxury Senator. The major feature of the E-Series GTS which differentiates it from the other models in the range is the introduction of Magnetic Ride Control (MRC). MRC utilises magnetorheological dampers to improve the handling and dynamics of the car. In the GTS, the MRC can be switched between Performance and Track at the touch of a button. MRC is not available on the Clubsport, and is tuned to Luxury in the Senator.

HSV claims the braking performance of the GTS is better than some of the world's leading sports cars, including the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz AMG CLS55 and Lamborghini Gallardo. The GTS can come to a full stop from 100 km/h in just 36 metres, only 30 centimeters shy of a Porsche 911.
