Last Holden auctioned

The very last Holden off the manufacturing line in Australia will be on auction this weekend.

Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions, Lee Hames, said the company was very excited to offer the very last Holden ever framed, stamped and painted in Australia.

“The interest in this car has been phenomenal, we have had enquiry from collectors, investors and Holden enthusiasts from all over the country, phones are ringing off the hook night and day,” he said.

“There are some very passionate Holden enthusiasts and collectors looking to own this special piece of Australian History.”

The Holden VF Series II SSV Redline, built in October to 2017 is the one and only, very last Holden that holds part of a 70-year Australian automotive history, with 102km on the odometer and presenting in the same original, showroom condition rolling out of Holden.

“We start all auctions at $1, there’s no precedent for price on this car as it is just so rare, there will never be another ‘last Holden’, but it certainly wouldn’t surprise us if it achieved a strong 6 figure result,” said Hames.

“We have seen a huge demand for Holden vehicles particularly HSV since the closure of Holden and we encourage anyone who might be looking to sell their vehicle to give us a call right now,” said Hames.

“One example of this is the W1 Maloo Ute also listed in the same auction this weekend.

“This car was a secret project built under the cloak of silence to celebrate two Australian icons. The first being Holden and the second being a classic Aussie ute. This is arguably one of Australia’s most collectable muscle cars, and is one of only four ever built,” said Hames.

With the current bid sitting at $1,050,000 the iconic Australian Ute still has another 3 days until Australian car enthusiasts around the country find out just what price this highly anticipated car will achieve.

Car enthusiasts looking to own the holy grail of car manufacturing in Australia can bid on the very last Holden or the W1 GTSR Maloo Ute, along with a variety of other Australian, American, European and Prestige classics such as Chevrolet, Ford, Aston Martin, Porsche, Lamborghini and Ferrari go under the hammer ending from midday this Saturday the 30th of January.
