Holden Special Vehicles has revealed its GTSR W1 model will have a supercharged V8 engine and a price tag of about $170,000.
Unique LS9 features include a four-lobe 2.3 litre supercharger, forged aluminium pistons, dry sump lubrication and a specially-designed carbon fibre airbox, tailored to suit the HSV F2 range’s available underbonnet space.
Only 300 examples of the W1 will be built and each will retail for $169,990 plus on-road costs. That’s not exactly cheap, but with so few available and the landmark status of the GTSR W1 they will be snapped up in little time.
This may be where the road ends for the Australian-made car industry, but it has been a great journey this is a truly unforgettable destination.
