Walkinshaw Performance now offers a supercharger kit for the Holden Commodore HSV. The package costs $44,975, but it gives the HSV 644 hp and 592 lb-ft of torque. Because, you know, Pontiac geeks needed another reason to be angry.

The package, dubbed E2 Supercar kit, also includes a two-stage, three-inch exhaust system, lowered suspension, 20-inch alloys, a host of cosmetic gewgaws, and a factory-matching warranty for vehicles still covered by Holden's new-car guarantee.


In case you were wondering, the "Walkinshaw" in Walkinshaw Performance is indeed Tom Walkinshaw, he of touring-car and Formula 1 fame. Walkinshaw wasn't available for comment, but if we had to guess, we'd say that he thinks Pontiac's demise is a big ball of stink, too.
