Don’t see many of these getting around!

Lloyds Classic, Muscle and Barn Finds auction, which is taking place on Saturday, November 25, has an absolutely awesome array of enthusiast cars up for grabs.

There’s something for everyone at this auction, but we couldn’t help but single out this gorgeous 1984 HDT VK SS Group 3.

Finished in Alpine White, this VK Group 3 comes equipped with the venerable M21 four-speed manual transmission.

What’s more, according to Lloyds the VK has a very low 115,935 kilometres showing on the clock from new!

That’s means that this classic V8 brute has travelled less than 3600 kilometres a year since it rolled off the production line.

Slotted under the svelte bonnet of the Group 3 lies the Iron Lion’s heroic 5.0lt bent-eight donk, and, thanks to an HDT cold air intake, the V8 bruiser pumps out a respectable 177kW, making the VK a quick car, even by today’s standards.

Around 200 of these beauties were ever built, making them exceedingly rare, and we’d hazard a guess that the Group 3 would be a fairly solid investment for the future, especially this low-mileage example.
