In 1993, the significantly redesigned VR Senator was released. The rear seating was from the Holden Statesman. Along with the rest of the HSV range, the Senator body kit was penned by designer Ian Callum to produce a sleeker, more aggressive stance along with a 185 kW (248 hp) version of the 5.0-litre V8. A new suspension setup was developed, known as the touring package which aimed to provide capable handling and a smooth ride. Additionally, from May 1994 onwards, the Senator could be optioned with HSV’s new 215 kW (288 hp) 5.7-litre “stroker” V8 known as the “215i”. The $10,000 “stroker” engine option was hand built as an upgrade over the standard V8. This engine could be coupled to either the four-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. The total number built for both versions was 855.

Here we have a ’94 model Holden VR Senator HSV. Leaving the factory in Sherbrooke Green with Slate Grey leather trim. As the pictures show this car has been well used and displays loads of patina! Ripe for restoration or drive as is! Pop the hood to find the original 185kw V8 engine backed by the four-speed automatic transmission. The Senator starts and runs and does everything as it should. The odometer is showing 169968 kilometres. Surprisingly even the original logbook is still with the car. Build number is 355 of just 855 cars produced in this model by Holden Special Vehicles. Great entry level collectable! Now available for viewing in our Kogarah facility.
