PP30 is a genuine, authenticated Holden/HSV engineering development car with a hand-built prototype Holden/Harrop HSV 215i 5.7lt Tremec 6 speed manual stroker V8 that was the prototype for the VR Series GTS and then VS-GTSR.
PP30 is an unmolested and unrestored, original condition survivor that is a significant piece of the earliest history of HSV, recently confirmed by John McInerney (HSV), Warwick Bryce (HEC) and the late Brad Dunstan (HSV). Authentication documents and records, and provenance are available for the genuine buyer to see. This absolutely unique car is for the serious HSV collector.
From 1992 to 1997, PP30 was used throughout the engineering development of the HSV VP, VR and VS GTSR models. Modifications included the hand built 215i harrop stroker engine, tremec 6 speed manual gearbox, hydratrak LSD and twin piston premium brakes and level ride.
Other than some irregular use as a daily drive for a couple of years after 2008, PP30 is still in the same condition as it was when it left HSV in 1997. The car has less than 9,000km in the last 11 years.Press Reports:
