The Evolution of The HSV Maloo
The VG series was the flagship model for HSV Maloo. This model dawned large rims and body kit. Furthermore, a powerful 5-liter V8 engine gave this vehicle its power. In the 1990’s this was a remarkable step considering such powerful engines were in smaller sports vehicles. 2 years later, the VP series was unveiled. The significant changes made were a finer interior and a front metal sheet. It still maintained the 5-liter engine. However, the engine was upgraded to a whopping 248-horse power. This was a big deal considering the shape, design and manufacturer of the vehicle.
At the millennium, the VU series was unveiled with pomp and excitement. Unveiling of the VU series brought the curtain down on a decade of the VS series. This version featured a powerful 5.7-liter V8 engine, producing 342-horse power. Changes on the back were also significant. This model of the HSV maloo now features a sturdy back cover. In addition, the raised rear wing gave more space and larger view. The Y series hit the market in 2002 and it came with its own benefits.

Other technological advancements included traction control and a new rear suspension. The brilliance in the creation of HSV Maloo is astonishing. The year 2007 saw the release of the E series. It now featured a massive 6.2-liter V8 engine. The introduction of linear control and electronic stability control made this car even more popular. This led to the release of two more models of the HSV Maloo.
