Walkinshaw Holden SS-V Superwagon: 603 HP Of Salt-Rubbing-In-Wound Pontiac Power



http://jalopnik.com/5500938/walkinsh...-pontiac-power



One of the best performance sedans GM ever built, the Pontiac G8 GXP, is dead. The Aussies still get a Holden version, and a wagon. Heck, this one from Walkinshaw Performance packs 603HP. Wagon. V8. Supercharger. Sometimes the world's unfair.

Walkinshaw's Superwagon is based on a Holden SS-V Special Edition Sportwagon which comes from the factory with a 362HP 6.0-liter V8 with 390 lb-ft of torque. Not too shabby for a slick wagon. But Walkinshaw saw that as a starting point, packing on a roots type supercharger, bigger fuel injectors and custom 3-inch exhaust system to raise output to an passenger-rearranging 610 HP and 568 lb-ft of torque. The car also gets a stiffer set of lowering springs, new dampers and 20" wheels and a powertrain warranty for all the work which matches the length of the original GM warranty. Have we mentioned is available with a six-speed manual transmission. We're about to go cry in our Wheaties.

fuck I love Holdens. That looks really good! and a 600 horsepower supercharged V8!

I can't wait to visit Australia. My bro-in-law has a Commodore SS (G8) but he has to keep it corked to keep the wife happy, heh. He heard an exhaust clip of my car and he said "that's bloody awesome, mate!"

If I won the lottery, I would seriously consider cutting up a B7 S4 to make it look like that since we can't get RS4 Avants here

If you won the lottery, why not just bring an RS4 Avant over here?

I thought about that right after I posted.

Probably makes more sense in the long run

The front was to actually protect the paint on the 800 highway miles I drove in a weekend lol. The rest was for lulz that got added the further south we got haha. Best part of the whole trip was getting stuck in all the nascar traffic leaving the dover speedway and my friends writing nascar sucks on their whiteboards in his A4 infront of me. People were not happy, I had my buddy write "My 4 cylinder makes more torque then your V8", we got shit thrown at us. It was win haha.

And just for the record guys, you all fail because I'm pretty sure this wagon hasn't been posted yet.

552hp of 5.0 Twin Turbo V10 goodness.

Also, I never thought about these in this way, but I was one at a local autocross and it was absolutely badass, as long as its the Aero trim.
