The Senator has been built over the following series:. It was also a car produced to address the public disappointment caused by HSV canning its ambitious HRT project previewed in Developed under contract to Holden, it was released in March Modifications were made to the standard Holden 5.
Upgrades were also made to the suspension, tyres and brakes. Although a total production of cars was original planned for racing homologation reasons, only were ultimately produced in non-sequential order meaning that build number may exist while build number may not.
The lighter Ute body provided a performance edge over the other HSV sedan counterparts. Models based on the long-wheelbase Holden VQ Caprice were released soon after.
