Chevrolet to release CSV CR8 Lumina

Chevrolet to release CSV CR8 Lumina


We just received a list of 2008 models from General Motors Middle East, and hidden in this list is a “CSV CR8” with “400+ horsepower” and what not. This is confirmation that Chevrolet will finally release the Australian HSV Commodore supersedans in the Middle East with Chevy badging, but dropping the Lumina name. There are even photos of the Chevy-badged car in the GCC.


The car will have a 411 hp 6.0-litre V8 if it follows the HSV specs, with a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. It will also have 19-inch wheels, DVD entertainment system, special upholstery, a body kit and unique LED tail-lights.


The HSV version can do 0-100 kph in 5 seconds with either gearbox.


We now understand why the standard Lumina SS is offered with such a basic trim level. They were waiting for the CSV CR8 to take the top spot. Should be fun.


Some of these cars are already sitting quietly at some dealership probably for testing purposes.


What do you think?



  1. Gosh I guess I saw this in Aweer Auto Mart. Are u taling about the same eh?

  2. i think Holden will arrive here in November, not this one.

  3. look nice but interior look bad.
    tell me when its launch in arab markerts??? 🙄

  4. To Mr.Chowdhury…… Why Mitsubishi stopped doing Magna? it was very powerful and comfortable car 😥

  5. Attn: Assassin:
    buy new lumina ss and enjoy dude :mrgreen:

  6. 2006 lumina SS is enough for me.I had it and it’s simply great. 😀

  7. Its From Australia That Car!!!!!!!!

    Its Aussie Built Tough!!!!!!!

  8. wow thats great with this Lumina ss we can beat The Monster Jeep Srt so we wont be a loser anymore. But i have infiniti g35 last year i bought it because i learned from Chowdry that lumina losted from infiniti will sell G35 will buy this one to beat Jeep srt8. 😆 😆 😆

  9. mr sohi forget about the G35. hehe. there will be G37 and it destroyed the BMW 335i and one of the magazines wrote about it. its enough that it has a transmision controls behind the steeering like lambo and ferrari. even porsche dont have it (i know you will say it has on the steering it self). but thats not as good as its behind the steering. (its my opinion). and this is not in mercedes and bmw. and its only infiniti. many people still underestimating the infinity brand. but am sure since they will start selling cars in europe. just give it 5 years and then you will see. i always keeps looking at infinity cars when i see them in the roads. 😉 and the new one is V6 but it give Hp as an V8. and its only enough that it has the VQ engine the winner 13 times in a row. since they launch this competition. 😎 you should be proud that you have an infinity. :mrgreen:

  10. 😛 Yes, and now importing to the Netherlands, Europe. Bye, bye BMW etc.

  11. Well done guys.
