Rare Holden to Break Records

An extremely rare, limited edition Holden HSV VN SS Group A is going under the hammer this Saturday set to far surpass its previous 6 figure auction record.

This car is build #002 of only 302 ever built in Australia and has just over 36 thousand kilometers, which makes it a highly sought-after Holden vehicle.

“We auctioned the same model back in April, which broke an Australian World Record price, and we believe this one being build #002 might just break it again based on the amount of enquiry we have had already,” said Lee Hames, Chief Operating Officer at Lloyds Auctions.

It has only had two owners from new, with the current owner owning the vehicle since 1994.

This series was the very last of the Group A Holdens, and at the time these cars were produced, the Group A rules required a manufacturer to build a minimum of 500 vehicles of a specific make.

This was the reason Holden produced the VN SS Group A, and although they only built 302 units, the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS) granted holden an exemption and allowed them to compete in the 1991 and 1992 Group A championships.

The price of these cars have skyrocketed in the last couple of years, and this car is expected to break new records due to the closing of Holden.

“This iconic car is a timepiece in Australian motor sporting history, and serious enthusiasts will need to be verified prior to bidding due to the important significance of this car,” continued Mr. Hames.

There will also be a range of other classic cars going under the hammer such as Kerry Packer’s 1977 Jaguar XJS, Glenn Seton’s 1997 championship winning Ford Credit Falcon EL, and many other amazing vehicles.
