2004 HSV GTO Coupe LE

As a modern interpretation of a two-door performance car, HSV’s GTO Coupe will complement Holden’s latest generation three Monaro. While the orginal Coupe already boasts knockout looks, awesome performance and dynamics with a healthy dose of luxury, that hasn’t stopped HSV raising the benchmark even higher with the GTO Coupe Series 3.

Limited edition GTO

The first 100 vehicles of Series three production will be a limited edition model, dubbed GTO Coupe LE. The LE includes all Series 3 refinements plus a selection of distinctive LE features such as a plush leather Senator-style interior trim package (in anthracite), a roof spoiler, factory fitted sun-roof and HSV Signature 19 X 8 inch five spoke alloy wheels with Pirelli PZero tyres. Available only in single tone Turbine Grey, Quicksilver, or Ultra Violet, it’s also identified by a special LE badge and a unique GTO LE build plate. HSV’s exclusive Ultra Violet was originally seen on the HRT Edition Maloo ute concept car and now comes to life again on Coupe LE.

The production run of 100 vehicles, comprising 80 automatics and 20 manuals, will be split between Australia and New Zealand. The GTO Coupe LE offers an exclusive, subtle and very seductive package.
