Holden Torana SL/R 5000 A9X with low mileage sells for $425,000

An original 1977 Holden Torana SL/R 5000 has sold for $425,000, thanks to its low mileage and rare options list. What makes this particular Holden so desirable is its rare A9X package, which was introduced as a way for the car company to fit more competitive performance parts to their racing cars, which had to be based on their road-going version. This particular Tuxedo Black sedan has less than 30,000 kilometres on the clock, and was held onto by the last owner for 28 years.

Where did it all go wrong for Holden?

COMMENT Like all major disasters, the demise of Holden after 72 years in Australia is the result of a vast number of factors – some of which were out of its control. The problems go way beyond the use of the Commodore name on the imported model after local manufacturing ended in 2017 (the name probably helped not hindered sales), or the series of misguided TV advertisements and billboards that tried to radically change Holden’s image to appeal to a more cosmopolitan audience.
