Produced from 1992 until 2017 (the final assembly of the last four vehicles was completed in 2018), the Maloo holds a World record for World’s fastest production truck. On offer here is an extremely rare, one former keeper, UK-supplied GEN-F2 Maloo R8 LSA with £12,000-worth of engine modifications by Walkinshaw Performance and now generating in the region of a substantial 720bhp. The increases in power and torque aren’t the only things about the Maloo R8 LSA’s 6.2-litre, supercharged V8 that will get your heart racing, press the throttle and the uprated exhaust system with quad outlets will roar to life with a soundtrack no rock band could ever beat! This is mated to an upgraded 6-speed automatic transmission with Active Select and paddle shift specifically calibrated to the LSA engine power and torque output. Finished in striking ‘Some Like It Hot’ Metallic Red, this UTE sits on upgraded Matte Anthracite SV Rimfire 20” forged alloy wheels wrapped in Continental ContiSports with huge AP ventilated discs with forged 4-piston Red callipers peeping through. The HSV styling includes a Performance Body Design consisting of a subtle front fascia splitter, HSV remote-locking hard tonneau, HSV side-skirts along with the ‘Pitch Black’ style pack incorporating Pitch Black fender vents, mirror scalps, bonnet vents, and belt line and door frame moulding. The cabin is equally dramatic with HSV Performance seats in Onyx leather trim with four-way electric adjustment of driver seat and a multifunction, leather wrapped sports-profile steering wheel with height and reach adjust. The driver preference dial controls electronic vehicle systems including ESC, traction control, torque vectoring, launch control, electric power steering calibration and the bi-modal exhaust, increasing performance with every clockwise turn. Its 8” high-resolution, colour touch-screen display enables USB input, Bluetooth, single CD player with the capability to play MP3 tracks, full iPod® integration and a six-speaker enhanced audio system. It’s supplied with the original handbooks, original HSV floor mats and its service history. Having covered only 11,000 miles and in totally sparkling condition, this is a fabulous beastie. It may be totally non-PC and ‘drink like an Irish poet’ but it’s a free world and there is no finer way to upset the neighbours. A striking example of the World’s Fastest Production Truck with Walkinshaw Performance engine upgrades and guided very attractively. More Details Lot 753 Bid On Lot 753
