With only three owners this superb VY GTS example is showing only 49,000kms from new.
The original Phantom Mica metallic black paint is like new, unmarked and unchipped - this car has had a dream life and the interior presents the same way. Unique to the VY Series 1 cars were the 8 way adjustable wrap around HSV Performance contoured seats, which remain as new in this car.
Built to be the pinnacle of the HSV model range in 2003/2004, only 142 VY GTS 300 sedans were made; 117 in VY and 25 in VY II.
Unique to the GTS 300 was the direct from USA imported Callaway Engineering handcrafted 5.7 litre C4B LS1 with 300kW @ 6,000rpm and 510Nm @ 4,800rpm. Callaway mods included CNC-ported heads, roller rockers, a more aggressive roller cam, new stainless steel valves and titanium retainers to give a lighter valvetrain. Compression ratio was a high 9.95:1 running on 98 octane. HSV also specified an upgraded, free-flowing exhaust system and a red anodised alloy big-bore throttle body with matching engine covers and a larger intake pipe.
Power is transmitted through a torque enhanced THM4L60E 4 speed auto and 3.46:1 Hydratrak limited slip differential rear end. The GTS also received the premium 'Ultimate' braking system - AP Racing callipers with six piston front and 4 piston rear on massive cross drilled, grooved and ventilated rotors. GTS wheels were new for the VY in 19 x 8 inch for the first time.
The GTS was the quickest of all HSV offerings in 2003 with 0-100kmh in less than six seconds and covering the 400 metres in the high 13 second bracket. In late 2002, Wheels Magazine clocked Greg Murphy at over 270km/h during a high speed test at the GMH Lang Lang Proving Ground in a stock GTS sedan.
This superb example of a rare top of the line HSV comes with all important HSV documentation, Zupps Holden dealer new car invoice, owners manuals and log books and the all important HSV golf ball gift case.
