Super rare and highly collectable HSV VR GTS. Build No. 165 of only 277 built. This is an HSV FACTORY stroked 5.7L Aussie V8 with the T56 6 speed manual gearbox and Hydratrak rear end. This was the first time since the early 70's that an Aussie car manufacturer had built a 300HP screamer. Capable of 14.8 seconds for the 400m, 0-100 km/h in just 6.6 seconds and a 243 Km/h top speed.
Build No. 165 has covered a genuine 139,000 km from new with full Logbook history, original pre-delivery report from Dealership when car was purchased brand new and HSV authentication certificate. These GTS models were hand built with blue printed and balanced engines from HSV. They were match ported with head work carried out and more. Wheels Magazine tested the car against the legends of the 70's and concluded it to be the fastest production car ever built in Australia's history.
Just 300 cars were built with the 5.7 litre GTS option and only 33 in Diablo Red. This car has a strut top tower brace, new Pedders springs and brand new Michelin tyres all round. Upgraded exhaust with pacemaker extractors and 100 cell high flow cats and twin 2.5" exhaust sounds like a V8 should. Ceramic spray paint protected with lifetime warranty.
This is a great investment that offers true bullet performance and a car to be very proud of given it's place in HSV and Walkinshaw's history. This is a serious and currently great value Aussie muscle car. Very collectable now and in the years to come will only appreciate more. Full QLD registration. GTS-194 plates go with the car.
