One question.. where are they hiding the 3 (imaginery) seats? I'd like to know their secret..

But it does look pretty damn good, should have one of those VE Walkinshaw bonnets though.. would love to go for a ride in something like that.

I thought Maloos were more like $70k, and extra for the "performance pack", leather and 20inch wheels etc. They ****ed up though, cos you can't get MRC on Maloo. Their options are pretty expensive though, and I imagine the price they give is for that ute with the upgraded wheels etc. The superchargers are over $16k for the "stage 1" tune.
I've driven the new Walkinshaw and it is a bloody good thing, a dump load more torque than stock makes for an easy drive. Despite the extra grunt its not a hell of a lot faster to the legal limit, has real trouble putting the power to the ground even with 275s on the rear. Helluva lot of fun tho, specially if you like driving while looking thru the side windows!

It says the magnetic suspension is only in the GTS models. Kind of looks like they're too lazy to write individual descriptions

The base Maloo is $65k, I went to look at one at my local HSV dealer... thought it would make a good daily driver. I can live without leather and I'd put 22s on it so the performance pack doesn't really interest me

$16k for there supercharger pack is a bit much in my opinion when you can get a GenTT twin turbo kit that will make more power for half that price. The thing I don't like about Walkinshaw Performance is that they don't make many of their own parts, so your not really getting anything special, other than the name. For example they buy King Springs, paint them black and sell them for twice the price as "Walkinshaw Performance Springs"

Hmmm, RRP used to be $70,990 for the R8 manual, they possibly quoted you cheaper as the 6.0 litre is now obsolete. HSVs will now have the 6.2 as standard. 10 more kW I think, but no more Nms
Still, its an awesome vehicle, drove an auto one a couple of months back. But like all V8 Holdens and HSVs, it needs a bigger exhaust to hear that awesome V8 rumble! Quicker to legal limit than an EVO X, that'll pi55 off the ricers!

This "Pink" VL Turbo was RIPV8S one of the best if not THE best Genuine VLT in NZ has won heaps of awards etc.... Prehaps its not selling due to the fact it's fully modifyed and is an unfamiliar vehicle to most if I had the $$ it'd be sitting on my doorstep in a heartbeat

I agree with Aaron, it's a very well built car and has had a heap of money and time chucked at it. It's not a look that I personally like (it's not white or some shade of grey ) but I can appreciate it for what it is

It was a ****ing mint car until he sold it, but pink isn't for me (though as far as pink goes, it's good). I've never noticed before.. is the exhaust exiting in the middle??

Also, it NEEDS those big wheels, when it was on steels it looked pretty bad.

28 spline VL axles are worth $200 each second hand, so that diff should sell for around $600 in my opinion

This wagon might make a nice project for someone. Black calais V8 wagon. Depending on paint condition, it wouldn't need a lot of work, some lowered springs and nice wheels would set if off nicely.

That too! Way too cheap at the mo tho, it looks like a mint stocker, but I'm pickin the bids will speed up on the last day. Nothing a set of 19s and superlows wouldn't fix!
