This is the most expensive pickup in Australia, costing nearly 1 million Australian dollars

The last 2017 Holden HSV Maloo GTSR off the production line is on sale for nearly 10 times its original value.

Americans have always had a passionate love for pickups, and more specifically, high performance pickups. Whether they excel at off-road, or reach record speeds on the highways, Americans love all of them. Today’s favorite cars like the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX have been heavily covered in the press, but on the other side of the world, we have another country that loves pickups.

That particular country is Australia, where pickup trucks are often referred to by a very strange sounding word “ute”.

Australians love pickup trucks. The most powerful car sold in this country, the Holden HSV Gen-F GTS, is not a sports car, SUV, or supercar, but a pickup. The Aussies were so crazy about Holden HSV that some were sold at a very high price, and the specific proof is that the car pictured here has just been listed for nearly A million Australian dollars.

This last 2017 HSV Maloo GTSR ever produced is currently priced at $ 958,000. This is a few times more expensive than a conventional supercar in Australia. An agent in the city of Cannington, who is the owner of this rare pickup, was extremely “clever” to quietly keep the car for about 5 years. As a result, they can now sell the car for almost 10 times its original value.

This Holden HSV Maloo GTSR is the 600th out of 600 produced, and only 27 km on the speedometer, proof that it is brand new. Another noteworthy factor is that it is equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine that produces 583 hp and 740 Nm of maximum torque, combined with rear-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual transmission. It weighs 1,825 kg and will be able to accelerate from 0-100 km / h in just 4.2 seconds, before reaching a top speed of about 320 km / h.
