HSV recently announced its intentions to built the fastest ute, the LSA supercharged V8 GTS Maloo. Apparently Holden has been working on the project for years but officially announced it to its dealers last August.
Here’s what we were able to find out:
- The Holden Special Vehicles performance car division will ensure the humble homegrown ute goes out with a very big bang by installing the supercharged V8 from the $100,000 HSV GTS sedan, the fastest and most powerful car Australia has ever produced.
- But the boffins at HSV have fitted the supercharged Maloo (aboriginal for ‘thunder’) with the latest technology to enable its might and power to get to the road responsibly, including the biggest brakes ever fitted to a ute anywhere in the world.
- HSV boss Tim Jackson refused to confirm such a car exists but Holden dealers have told Carsguide it will be in showrooms by the end of this year priced about $85,000, making it the most expensive ute ever sold in Australia.
