The VL SS Group A was the second car built for Group A racing purposes by HDT and also numbered 500 in total. First released in 1986 and only offered in Permanent Red paint code, was also the launch of the new Unleaded V8 (4.987 Litre V8 Overhead valve, 2 valves per cylinder. Bore x Stroke (mm): 101.6 x 76.8. Compression ratio: 8.5:1. Max Power: (DIN)137kw @ 4400rpm and 345nm at 3200rpm. Max recommended rpm 5600). Due to the controversial Energy Polariser fiasco between Brock & Holden there was actually two versions of the Group A. Holden could see no technical merit in the Polariser and thus refused to fit it to the cars, so Brock refused to put decals with his signature on cars without it. As a result, Brock’s signature only appears on the higher spec Plus Pack variant, which is roughly 173 of the 500 built.
This VL SS Group A being built number 419/500 may have the polariser fitted and Brock’s decal signatures affix to the vehicle but isn’t documented as one of the 173 that officially are.
