Miss out on one? Now’s your chance

The HSV W1 was always going to be a car in high demand, and we’re pretty sure nobody was surprised when rumours started flying around that some folks had to shelve out a bit more than the $169,990 list price.

How much more? Well, some whispers on the grape vine suggested that a few HSV diehards had forked out over $300,000.

Now, that may seem utterly absurd, and for some of you it might not even seem plausible, but Duttons Garage in Richmond, Victoria, obviously think the rumours are true, because they’ve got a GTSR W1 for sale, and they’re asking $299,990.

That means that if someone were to purchase it and put it on the road, by the time you’ve factored in government charges and rego, you’re looking at a car firmly in the $300 Grand club.

Still though, build number 239 of 300 does look utterly awesome in Heron White, and its travelled 17 kilometres… total.

It’s even got the protective plastic coverings on the side skirts, drivers and front passenger seat and the alcantara-clad steering wheel.

So, it’s a brand new car, and while the price tag seems outrageous, it’s only a bit more expensive than the new Mercedes-AMG E63 S, and we're quite certain the Aussie-built one will hold its value a hell of a lot better.
