If you don’t hide under the rocks, you will find that the price of used cars has gone up in the last two years and in Australia, the price of some cars has gone up like some of the rare HSV models. Take the HSV GTSR W1 as an example.
The final version of the Holden Commodore was relaunched in 2017 and when it was new it indicated an eye-watering price tag of AU $ 127,700 ($ 91,898). Fast forward five years and that starting price now seems to be affordable as the examples used are trading above AU ,000 500,000 ($ 359,822).
This particular GTSR W1 is one of 298 examples produced so far, of which 275 have been sold in Australia. It has been listed for sale through Australian muscle car sales It will only consider offers over AU $ 450,000 ($ 323,840).

The exterior of the sedan is adorned with a paint color called ‘Son of a Gun Gray’ which is complemented by matte black wheels and bright red brake calipers. The car has only driven 582 km (361 miles) since it was introduced in new and excellent condition.
The GTSR W1 is powered by the C6 Corvette ZR1’s famous 6.2-liter supercharged V8, which produces a remarkable 636 hp and 601 lb-ft (815 Nm) of torque. Attached to this engine is a Tremec TR6060 MH3 close-ratio six-speed manual transmission that transmits its power through the rear wheels. The Pirelli P Zero Trophy and the tires help keep all this energy on the ground.
Much like the exterior, the interior is absolutely impeccable with black leather and decorating the Alcantara seats, transmission tunnel, dashboard, steering wheel and door panels.
