    Many mistakes. Bathurst was never 500ks it was 500 miles until the end of 1972 then it became 1000ks. The A9X Torana was a Holden 308 CID making 400BHP in race trim with a super T10 and ten bolt Holden diff it totally dominated touring car racing through out 78 and 79. winning Bathurst 78 by 1 lap then winning Bathurst 79 by 6 laps or 37 ks starting from poll leading every single lap of the race with Peter Brock setting the fastest lap time on the last lap and incase your wondering our races here are a standing start not rolling start. Its Walkinshaw not Wilkenshaw. The VL did get the Nissan 6 but it also got the Holden 308 redeveloped for unleaded fuel. As for the 3rd gen Commodore / Monaro the sketch was based on the VT not VX and that's what the concept car was but by the time they put it in to production the VT was replaced by the VX

    The most powerful HSV is the GTS W1, the very last car produced by Holden. They also made a W1 Maloo however only 4 of those exist in the world and were a gift to Holden's top 4 collectors.
