- For 2010, the entire E-Series HSV range receives a mid-cycle facelift and performance upgrades.

Prices for the 2010 Senator Signature start at AU$82,990 
- At the 2008 Sydney Motor Show, Holden's performance division, HSV, unveiled two new high performance variations of the VE Commodore. The Gran Turismo Sportivo (GTS), to mark the 40th anniversary of the GTS nomenclature first used in the 1968 HK Monaro and the Senator Signature SV08 which revives the SV nameplate first used in the SV88 20 years ago. Only 100 GTSs will be made and will be distinguished from the Commodore by way of black heritage stripes, tire pressure monitors and a commemorative logo embedded on the headrest, brake calliper, sill plate and rear panel. The softer of the two, the Senator Signature, will not feature as many holes and flaring aerodynamic nostrils as GTS, nor will it be meant for serious performance-oriented driving, instead, it will be more of a luxury-performance cruiser despite sharing the 425hp (317kW)/406lb-ft (550Nm) LS3 V8. It features exclusive paint schemes, sill plates, 20in alloys, a full leather trim and will be available with a six-speed automatic or manual. Only 50 examples of the latest SV will be produced.
