IN EARLY APRIL, Holden Special Vehicles advised that enthusiasts and collectors eager to get their hands on a future classic would need to pull out the cheque book by April 28 to make the cut.
That day now long gone, HSV has announced that the last order to be filled, W427 number 137, has rolled off the line at Clayton.
On its way to a new life in Perth, the Heron White W427 pictured above was ordered by a HSV dealer on the west coast, although HSV spokesman Simon Frost remained tight-lipped on the dealer's identity.
HSV's self-proclaimed 'Aussie Supercar', the W427 came with a $155,000 price tag and a 375kW V8 heart.
Phil Harding, Managing Director at HSV, said:
?Who knows what the market for exotic muscle cars will look like in the future??
?The purchase of a W427 might represent a savvy investment opportunity ? as well as delivering a driving experience that is pure exhilaration and excitement,?
Soon to be sitting on the last example of HSV's most ambitious project to date, who can blame that lucky Perth collector for requesting anonymity?
