Extremely Rare Holden Expected To Break Australian Auction Record

An extremely rare Holden vehicle is going under the hammer this weekend in Australia and it's expected to fetch top dollar.

The limited edition Holden HSV VN SS Group A is one of the first of its kind ever produced.

Only 302 of these bad boys were created and this is #002.

It's only notched up 36,000kms since it was created back in 1990 and has only had two owners.

The series was the last of the Group A Holdens, which were created under a rule that stipulated a manufacturer had to build a minimum of 500 vehicles from a specific make.

However, they manufactured much fewer than required and that could have caused serious headaches for racers.

The Confederation of Australian Motorsport eventually granted Holden an exemption and allowed them to compete in the 1991 and 1992 Group A championships

Lee Hames, Chief Operating Officer at Lloyds Auctions, said in a statement: "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.

"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."

The bidding has already reached into six figures, with the latest being $306,000 with four days left to go.

The five-seater manual 'is virtually all original apart from an aftermarket Exhaust and chip'. It also comes 'with original books, service history, two sets of keys and a Certificate of authenticity from HSV'.

Because it's such a rare offering, buyers have to be pre-approved to submit a bid.

It will be sold unregistered, so you'll have to get it properly checked out before you take 'er on the road.

However, considering it's such a rare collector's item, you wouldn't be alone in wanting to preserve it for as long as possible.
