Demand at Aussie muscle car auction breaks the internet, to restart today

Bidders have been left in a panic as strong demand for Aussie muscle cars crashed an auctioneer's website and clogged phone lines. Slattery Auctions was holding the online event, comprising mostly Australian-built models – as well as one Japanese wildcard – when its systems began to fail with only three minutes before the auction was due to end at 18:00 last night.

‘Last’ Holden Commodore sells for $750,000, but final car to roll off the production line remains in museum

The ‘last’ Holden Commodore has sold at auction today for a staggering $750,000 – as US giant General Motors clarifies the mystery behind two identical examples claiming to be the final Australian-made car. The red Commodore V8 sedan sold by Lloyds Auctions today was the last serial number to be allocated to an Australian-made Holden – and the final vehicle to go through the Adelaide factory’s body assembly and paint shop.

2017 HSV GTSR Maloo W1 ute poised to break auction record

A 2017 HSV GTSR Maloo W1 is set to rewrite the record books. The vehicle is one of only four GTSR Maloo W1 utes ever built by HSV, and is currently being offered by Lloyds Auctioneers – and there are high expectations for the rare machine. At the time of writing, the HSV had a bid of $675,000 with more than three weeks until the final hammer, suggesting a price of $1 million was not out of the question. With the 7.5 per cent auction premium, the current price sits at more than $725,000.

1971 Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III sells for $400,000: 'attacked with an axe, no engine, bring trailer'

A 1971 Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III left to rot in a shed for decades – missing an engine and had been attacked with an axe – sold for a mind-boggling $400,000 at auction at the weekend. Bidding on Grays Online passed $200,000 within 24 hours of the undriveable vehicle being listed last week, but it was passed in on the weekend once bids reached $350,000, having not met its reserve price. However, negotiations after the auction saw the battered and bruised muscle car change hands for $400,000.
