THE CREW at Clayton has pulled the wraps off two new SportsCat models: the limited edition R and the Look Pack’ Based on the styling package of the SportsCat+ the R is distinguished by its gloss black paint and bold red accents. The 98 SportsCat R automatics being sold in Australia (two are going to New Zealand) will sell for $65,990, $3K below the regular price of the SportsCat+. Punters get a Colorado LTZ with HSV’ unique ESC and MTV damper tune, a 30mm widened wheel track and 45mm increased front ride height on HSV suspension, and 18x10-inch forged alloy wheels wrapped in Cooper all-terrain tyres.
The Look Pack’ sits between the SportsCat and SportsCat+ in the line-up and gets all the design and visual cues of the SportsCat+ (fascia, grille, fender flares, bonnet bulge and hard tonneau). The Look Pack’ benefits from HSV’ Sports Suspension and a unique ESC tune. Both new vehicles miss out on the premium AP Racing brake package and the decoupling rear sway bar.
