It was estimated at 200 thousand Australian dollars

A rare 1985 Holden Commodore VK Group A was found in the barn of a Sydney resident. The sports car, which exists in only 500 copies, was estimated at 200 thousand Australian dollars. The car is well preserved, except for years of dust on the body and flat tires.

The author of the publication states that the car was imprisoned for 22 years due to the fact that the insurance for the sports car was ruinous. But before the car was locked in a shed, he managed to drive 44,666 kilometers. The Commodore Group A was released in a limited edition of 500 for homologation in the racing series of the same name. The sports car is powered by a 4.9-liter V8 engine with 263 horsepower, which is combined with a manual transmission and rear-wheel drive.

With this setup, Commodore Group A accelerates from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in seven seconds, and a top speed of 215 kilometers per hour.

This copy was released on the 357th, as evidenced by the inscription on the glove box lid. It is finished in a special Formula Blue color and the original HDT Aero wheels are wrapped in 225/50 / VR16 Bridgestone Potenza tires. Together with the car, the seller is ready to hand over to the new owner a pile of documents, including logbooks.

An advertisement for the sale of a rare find appeared on the Muscle Car Sales Facebook page, and on the first day there were potential customers ready to shell out about 200 thousand Australian dollars for the car.
