If you thought Australia’s ultimate performance utility couldn’t get any better, then think again. The GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA comes fully loaded with supercharged looks and a 6.2 litre Supercharged LSA Generation IV Alloy V8 engine to match.

The GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA features stylish 20" x 8.5" (front) and 20" x 9.5" (rear) alloy wheels with a Machined face and Magnetic Grey accents.
Daytime Running Lamps
The dual function lamp runs as a Daytime Running Lamp (DRL) and a Position Lamp meaning they can be seen at night, at a slightly lower intensity, in conjunction with the headlights.
PITCH BLACK STYLE
The GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA features Pitch Black Style incorporating Pitch Black fender vents and mirror scalps.
Sitting behind the wheel of the GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA, you’ll know you’re in control of something special.
The Maloo R8 LSA features:
- Driver Preference Dial
- HSV Performance Seats in Onyx leather trim
- 4-way electric adjustment of driver seat
- Multifunction, leather wrap sports profile steering wheel with height and reach adjust
- Unique HSV Centre Console
- R8 LSA I.D. plate
- Leather wrap gear selector
- Alloy faced pedals
The GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA features an 8" high-resolution, colour touch-screen display along with USB input, Single CD player with the capability to play MP3 tracks, Full iPod® integration and a 6-Speaker enhanced audio system.
The Bluetooth fitted standard to the GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA is fully integrated so keeping in touch, while on the move, has never been easier.
SUPERCHARGED LSA ENGINE
The GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA features a 6.2 litre Supercharged LSA engine which provides a staggering 400kW of power and 671Nm of torque (DIN).
With all this power comes the need for massive amounts of air cooling. To assist with this, the Maloo R8 LSA is fitted with a stacked plate engine oil cooler and a stand-alone water-to-air charge-air cooling system.
A revised suspension system, with upgraded spring and damper rates, further improves body roll and corner entry response.
DRIVER PREFERENCE DIAL
The Driver Preference Dial controls electronic vehicle systems including ESC, Traction Control, Launch Control (manual only), Electric Power Steering calibration and Bi-Modal exhaust, increasing performance with every clockwise turn.
The GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA features a 4-piston brake package which was developed using NASCAR and V8 Supercar technologies. With a larger rear brake disc, to accommodate all of that power from the Supercharged LSA engine, this brake package offers an outstanding strength-to-weight ratio along with superior brake feel and performance.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
Exclusively calibrated by HSV, the GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA’s ESC system monitors steering wheel angle and speed to make turning corners safer. If loss of traction occurs, ESC activates to apply brake pressure to individual wheels and, if necessary, reduces engine power.
Electronic Brake Assist (EBA)
In emergency braking situations, few people apply the required pressure to the brake pedal. EBA activates to optimise brake pressure performance.
