Holden HSV W427 - Fastest Street Legal Car in Australia



The Pontiac G8’s more powerful brother from down under; the Holden HSV W427 is Australia’s fastest street legal car. The G8 sibling is outfitted with the Corvette Z06 7.0 Liter V8 pushrod making 503 ponies and a spine-crushing 472 lb-ft of torque.

The clever marketing guys at GM Holden have decided to do a limited run of only 427 units of the W427, all built to order. Each beast will cost you $150,000 Australian or approximately $142,000 U.S.

You’re not “just” getting a Z06 heart for your money; you’re also getting the stunning 20 inch wheels, a new front fascia and rear spoiler crafted from carbon fiber, 14.9-inch, six-piston front brakes and Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual.
The W427 should hit New Zealand dealers in August 2008.

Below are the most recent details from Holden (note, measurements and pricing reflect home market):
