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.

Coronavirus: Holden Special Vehicles offers to help manufacture hospital ventilators

The company that used to make high-performance Holdens has offered to help health authorities in Australia manufacture makeshift emergency medical equipment to treat coronavirus patients. While Holden as a brand will close by the end of this year, its separately-owned performance-car offshoot has maintained its engineering and manufacturing resources because it will continue to sell US vehicles here, such as the Chevrolet Silverado (pictured below).
