HOLDEN COMMODORE 'TRACK DAY': SPOTTED
Brand new, Walkinshaw-fettled Holden for sale. There are still a couple of track days left y'know...
V8 Supercar and would certainly cause quite a stir should you turn up at Bedford with it.
A 536hp LS3 is a good way to start. The 6.2-litre V8 includes upgraded internals such as forged conrods, aluminium pistons and a race cam. There's also been loads of work to keep the oil and transmission cool when on track. And just to enhance the V8 Supercar vibe, the side-exit exhausts will reputedly belch flames with amusing regularity.
Behind the lightweight wheels and slicks sit 365mm (front) and 350mm (rear) brake discs with AP Racing calipers. DMS Racing has provided the springs and dampers for Walkinshaw's suspension upgrade.
You get the full racer experience inside too. The pedal box is adjustable, the dash is digital and the conventional wheel has been replaced by a gorgeous Alcantara Sparco rim. A couple of nasty vents remain though, just as a reminder of the car's origins.
For once, this is also a competition car where 'never raced or rallied' is actually applicable (if you ignore the development work...). So it's a nearly box-fresh race car built to almost V8 Supercar spec. And it's yours for 159,000AUD 'or nearest offer' which, at today's exchange rate, is £93,733.
Should you find a suitable race series, Walkinshaw will even provide some engineering support for the car. The Commodore is rather out of our track day budget, but looks like an absolute hoot nonetheless.
