HSV GTSR W1 Maloo sells for $1.05 million: new auction record for an Australian-made car

A new auction record has been set for an Australian-made road car after a Holden Special Vehicles GTSR W1 Maloo ute sold today for $1.05 million. Bidding for the supercharged V8 ute had already passed the $1 million mark a fortnight before the hammer fell in the Lloyds Auction this afternoon (30 January 2021), eclipsing the $1.03 million paid for a Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III in June 2018.

SSC Tuatara claims to have broken production car speed record... again

The SSC Tuatara – built by low-volume manufacturer SSC North America – has reportedly broken the production car speed record… again.
