Built specifically to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the touring car race at Bathurst in 2012, this limited edition one of 50 built 2012 HSV VE Walkinshaw Clubsport R8 Build No. 1777 is now for sale.
Limited Edition Bathurst Build number 25/50 is presented in Phantom black in stunning condition throughout with two owners from new and only 31,000 klms on the clock. With full HSV documentation, log books and all HSV and Walkinshaw paperwork including authenticity certificate and receipts for a recent forged engine rebuild that only add to the excitement already built into this special HSV R8.
Walkinshaw Performance offered the Bathurst 50th Anniversary pack as a $22,000 added cost to the R8. The Walkinshaw kit comes with a cat back exhaust, WP230 supercharger, leather interior with Walkinshaw embroidery and special badges to show that it's a genuine Limited-Edition Bathurst build.
In addition, the current owner has added a specially made cam to suit the supercharged engine, a methanol injection kit that kicks in at higher revs, a specialty made belt (fatter and thicker to handle the twist, torque and raw power), smaller pullies to increase the off-line boost and kilowatts and removed the cats to increase exhaust efficiency, add a few kilowatts and create a thunderous exhaust note! A stall converter has been added and an unique sticker celebrating the Bathurst build has been fitted - unique to this car alone. The car has been de-badged and only the HSV badges and the supercharged badge have been retained. (Everything taken off will come with the car.)
The car has been dyno tuned at 450 kw at the wheels and that was before the recent engine rebuild. So once run in it can only go harder.
This HSV ticks all the boxes. Exclusive Walkinshaw upgrades, limited edition build, plus the further performance enhancements making this an unique and desirable collectors item. Located in Adelaide, SA. (Ref. 5216)
