The 1996 HSV GTSR is an in-demand collector car

Classic car collectors continue to pay top dollar for Holden performance cars, with Lloyds Auctions again attracting plenty of interest.

At the time of publication the company was still negotiating the sale of the centrepiece of the auction, a 1996 HSV GTSR. The bright yellow Holden is a rare creation, with the special vehicles operation only building 75 examples of the V8 Supercar-inspired sports sedan.

The last time one went across Lloyds’ auction block in September 2021 it sold for $1 million. That particular car was build number #001 and was still in the same condition it was delivered to the original owner, but the rarity and unique appeal of these cars means they will always be much sought after by Holden collectors.
