2012 HSV R8 E3 Maloo 25th Anniversary - Build No.0007 … (SOLD)

The HSV Maloo R8 is about as far removed from the idea of a work ute as possible. There's no room for work gear in the tray. And who would dare trod dirty work boots through its sumptuous interior. And yet the Maloo has found a sweet spot here in Australia where it is revered as a very personal quintessentially Australian beast of a car. To celebrate their 25th Anniversary, HSV introduced a Maloo R8 25th Anniversary version of this iconic Aussie Ute. Build No. 0007 is for sale from our Sydney Showroom.

The flagship of HSV’s ute range, the HSV R8 E3 Maloo 25th Anniversary runs the 317kW naturally aspirated 6.2-litre ‘LS3’ V8 pumping out 550Nm at 4600rpm. Start her up and the initial bark of the big V8 settles into a throbbing 600rpm idle. Its impossible to miss the wonderful growl of the R8’s bi-modal quad-pipe exhaust. A light squeeze of the throttle and the Maloo R8 simply surges forward. This is quite intoxicating. And all of a sudden you understand why the Maloo has hit that sweet spot with Aussie Muscle Car enthusiasts as a very personal mode of transport.

Originally sold through Hunter Holden, Ryde, NSW, this ONE OWNER Maloo R8 25th Anniversary edition Build No. 0007/279, has been meticulously maintained and is presented in immaculate Heron White with Black velour trim. Featuring the sought after six-speed manual gearbox, Build 0007 has covered a genuine 153,965 Klms from new and comes with the HSV Compendium, owners log books and manuals and two sets of keys.

Standard equipment includes the amazing looking 20" Pentagon alloy wheels, Sport Touring suspension, a four-piston HSV brake package, launch control (manual only), satellite navigation, rear park assist with reversing camera, Bluetooth and USB input. The hard tonneau and tow bar were optioned by the owner on purchase. Safety gear includes four airbags, ‘competition mode’ stability control, antilock brakes with EBA and a five star ANCAP rating.

The Maloo is riding on Pirelli Dragon Sport tyres 245/35R20 on the front and 275/30R20on the rear. And the original spare is still in place and has never been used.

Build No. 0007 is presented in totally unmolested original condition and has been proudly owned and enjoyed by a professional mechanic since new.

Once you've driven a Maloo, you'll understand why these cars have such a cult following. And no doubt you'll be repeating the HSV tag line as you sleep ... "I Just Want One"!
