VN SS Group A Commodore. Build #444. A beautifully maintained example. One of 302 produced. (Numbering regime does not reflect numbers built). It remains the rarest and last of a proud history of homologation race specials. The most comprehensive collection of homologation hardware seen in a local performance car gave the road-going VN Group A. The final Group A engine was re-engineered for extra durability and performance with an upgraded four bolt main engine block with special pistons, rods, crankshaft, double row timing chain and myriad other tweaks over the previous Group A to make it bullet proof in endurance races. It was rated at a conservative 215kW which necessitated an equally hefty 6 speed manual transmission… the ZF S6-40, as specified for the Corvette ZR-1. Brakes, wheels and tyres all received attention with the first 17 inch wheel and tyre package on a local production car. The next generation Group A aerodynamic body package cut the VN body?s Cd from 0.34 to 0.30 and transformed the Group A’s appearance. It was finished in a special rich shade of red dubbed Duriff red. The cabin received extra attention with new body-hugging Group A seats. On the track, it was the only international Group A model that could take the battle head to head with the awesome Nissan Skyline GT-R at Bathurst.
This particular example has travelled 96,852 klm’s since new… Featuring: Complete Log Books, Paperwork and Service history… A spare brand new old stock wheel is included in the sale.
