The final HSV Maloo GTSR is for sale for almost a million dollars

A future collector for sure!

5w ago

Born in 1990, the HSV Maloo is the sporty version of the Holden Ute, a small pickup truck that is very popular in Australia. With its specific chassis settings and atypical V8 engine, the Maloo GTSR has a strong personality. Unfortunately, HSV's adventure came to an end on 31 December 2020 and took with it the Maloo, whose production ended in 2017.

The very last example produced is now on sale at Gardner Autos. A true final landmark in HSV's history and proudly displaying the number 600/600, the vehicle in question has only 151 km (94 mi) on the clock and has never been registered. With such attributes, it is normal that the asking price easily reaches new heights.

The dealer is asking a whopping AU$749,998 (€481,329/US$579,070/£419,155) before tax. Do you think this is expensive? The car was originally listed at AU$899,998 (€577,596/US$694,893/£502,986)! That's a bargain for a piece of HSV's history. To top it all off, the car still has its seat covers and the multiple plastic protections installed in the factory.

But the most interesting part of this car is obviously under the bonnet. A mighty 6.2-litre V8 with 583 PS and 740 Nm of torque makes the HSV Maloo GTSR a real racing machine. This impressive engine is combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox that sends all this power to the rear wheels.

  • This is a crazy number for a car. This short term overpricing is a bubble and will burst. Do you really want to be the idiot that overpaid when that happens. Pass!

    • Completely agree. Holden/HSV, as good and as much as I enjoy them, only really have a decent market value in Australia (all other continents have their own halo/cult homegrown cars which they follow) And finding the millionaire to buy a...

  • Man I can understand how Australians feel about the Holden brand. I live in India and was very upset when the Maruti 800 was discontinued in 2014. It is a legend here in India.

  • The world’s gone mad. This is absurd. Sure these were fun to drive (I’ve driven a couple) and something that will never see the light of day again, but when I think what else you could buy for $1m!!
