WP SERIES II SUPERCAR
Walkinshaw Performance, a part of HSV-owner Tom Walkinshaw's business stable, has today unveiled its new WP Series II Supercar at the Australian International Motor Show.
Based on the 2011 Holden Commodore Series II SS, the WP Series II Supercar is fitted with an Edelbrock E Force supercharger.
Through the combination of Holden's 260kW V8 and the Edelbrock supercharger, the WP Series II Supercar produces a huge 460kW and 780Nm of torque. Of that, 700Nm is available as low as 3000rpm.
“Today’s unveiling is the culmination of a real break through year for Walkinshaw Performance, with the introduction of new products and an industry-first driveline warranty”, Walkinshaw Performance CEO Craig Wilson said.
“The package is the result of hundreds of hours of testing, refinement and discussions between the WP team and our suppliers to bring to market a truly unique product”.
Limited to just 23 examples in honour of the original 'Walky' debut in Sydney 23 years ago, the WP Series II Supercar features an all-new front and rear brake pakage, with six piston calipers at both ends clamping on 378mm rotors up front and 365mm rotors out back.
Handling is improved thanks to upgraded and recalibrated suspension developed with Bilstein, and a full three-inch bi-modal exhaust system is also featured.
On the styling front, the WP Series II Supercar gets a carbon fibre front lip spoiler and embroidered WP headrests, along with WP-branded sill plates and arm rests.
A specially-commissioned Rockford Fosgate audio system features inside.
WP Series II Supercar packages begin at $99,990 (including the cost of a Holden Commodore Series II SS).
Price of the Walkinshaw Performance Series II Supercar showcar as displayed is $117,760.
