Hottest used Walkinshaw ute for sale

Walkinshaw is selling the special HSV Maloo from their VIP fleet – and you should see the extras.

Walkinshaw Performance is selling what must be the most desirable used ute in Australia. The rare and genuine Walkinshaw Performance HSV E3 Maloo is from their VIP fleet and is being moved on to make way for new fleet vehicles. Any doubts about the desirability? Just read some of the details in the ad.

It's a 2011 plated super low km (<3,500kms) vehicle that features some of our finest work. This thing has more soul than Marvin Gaye, more power than seven of the Toyota Yaris -- and looks-wise it would give Miranda Kerr a run for her money (note: also faster than Miranda).

Lists are usually boring, but this one is not. Read it while seated.

  • First up we whacked a WP230 Supercharger atop the LS3 engine which turned a 317Kw Maloo into a 480+kw Maloooooo. It also now boasts more torque than a political rally while actually producing results.
  • The wheels. We thought "20s would look nice". Up onto the hoist and shortly after the beast was shod with HSV SV Black 20" wheels with Bridgestone Potenza 275/30 rears and 245/35 fronts.
  • Looks. A Maloo is already the best looking ute out there, but we added an HSV GTS front bar in matt black and a number of HSV Black parts (Bonnet and side vents) to make angry look angrier.
  • The factory bimodal exhaust remains (As Top Gear's Richard Hammond once said "Makes it go to eleven"), but we added our billet aluminium matt black tips to ensure it was very WP styled.
  • It has a towbar with a WP cap on it for when you're not pulling an Airbus A380 for a friend (did we mention 800nm of torque?).
  • Of course it has a full service history, with all work done by us and backed by a balance-of-new- car warranty from WP.

This ute has been snapped up by a buyer that says he is "very excited."

  • Kakola of Canada - You've hit the nail on the head. Within 6 months most inside trim will start to fall apart. Door Sil plastics will break and clips will fall off. The dash will squeak and the seat belts will wear a hole through the leather. An expensive piece of rubbish just like it's Ford counterparts.

  • HSV - part of General Motors, right? I predict bits and pieces will start falling off this turkey within six months.

  • What a shit video ! Why is that whenever people advertise a good car they cover it with crap music ? How about once in a while we can HEAR the car running ? Anyone would think you were making a music video instead of showcasing a car ! Grow a brain you lot.

  • More power than an Enzo and 3 times slower and the handling of a boat.

  • Any/all vehicle manufacturers should hang their collective heads in shame after producing a 6 litre engined vehicle that guzzles nearly 15 litres/100km. Aren't we supposed to be cutting back on burning fossil fuels to slow global warming? Or don't the corporatists care at all? Obviously they'll do anything outrageously inappropriate to appeal to the room-temperature IQ petrol-heads who'll no doubt be dribbling their VB down their trakkie dacks when they see this automotive monstrosity. Thank you Holden for helping to destroy our grand-children's futures.

  • Wow, I don't really like utes and wouldn't buy a car like this, but I would never disrespect people who do. The negative comments here are ridiculous. What is Australia coming to. Everyone is so aggressive and so quick to belittle others. It makes me happy to think that someone will buy this and own it and love it and look after it and it will give them pleasure. I only hope that the critics have some pleasure in their lives, but I think that might be a slim hope.

  • @ Andy of QLD I bet you're the life of the partry, zzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Mick of Townsville Posted on 24 February 2013 1:01am
  • The people here calling others bogans etc.. Im almost certain that they would not be able to drop $65k on this, even if they lease a high end volvo or some crap they would not be able to take the huge depreciation hit that some tradie or bussiness ownser who is earning very nice money can manage! Its a great car! its not for me but wow I would love to have a go at it.

  • I have a huge penis, and I still want this car. Mine isn't growing out of my forehead though, unlike 'man size'.

  • Even if its legal, you'd never get insurance for it. As for fuel consumption, it probably uses a litre at every traffic light. A car for simple folk.

    Rhys Filbee of Australia Posted on 23 February 2013 9:20am
  • Thanks for your contribution Andy of Qld. We have to get at least one d***head comment, don't we? Tell us what you drive and let us "ooh and ahh" over your plastic rim covers.

  • What's with the girly-tween music?! We want to hear what that car is all about. Looks great. Video was awful. Let us hear the real music - a thoroughbred supercharged V8!

  • VB no flannie. If I hadn't just bought a new SSV. I'd be see ya tomorrow boss wink I think she'd like it.

  • More X than a Y (bad pun). More W than a Z (laboured/contrived metaphor). This insipid writing is more boring than a tupperware convention.

  • What a pathetic video. No engine shots, nothing. Waste of space this whole story is

    Maz of Earth Posted on 22 February 2013 3:31pm
  • Nice.... however this one is nicer.... 4294964634 904 1216 1282&num=15&silo=Stock&Range=Price:50000,60000~1&sort=default

  • I know cashed up Bogans love these utes, but even they are smart enough to notice the rims don't match front to rear

    Cletus of Upper Hunt Posted on 22 February 2013 3:00pm
  • Andy, you accidentally posted to the wrong website. This is a car enthusists site, I think you meant to send your post to .... Seriously dude, go tell someone who cares..

    Holden Ute Fan of Brisbane Posted on 22 February 2013 2:30pm
  • If it was a sedan yes, Utes are good for picking up concrete, paint and pigs! Nice, but not for me.

    Anti Ute of Lizbef Posted on 22 February 2013 1:48pm
  • it always amuses me the amount of people that get on these reviews and bag the said veihcle, pretty sure the title gives away what the vehicle is about, are we just a tad envious that we will never be able to afford one or are we just looking for an argument to start???

    marcus of tasmania Posted on 22 February 2013 1:32pm
  • more power than a Ferrari Enzo yeah but not a good car like a Ferrari Enzo yeah Why you would further ruin that thing with 20s is beyond me.

    Geoff of Canberra Posted on 22 February 2013 12:43pm
  • much hate for a quality piece of equipment.

    V8's rock Posted on 22 February 2013 11:35am
  • An expensive, powerful bogan ute. Big deal. Still years away from the class and refinement (with comparable performance) of BMW or Merc.

    John of MtP Posted on 22 February 2013 9:56am
  • I just can't understand why people with absolutely no interest in cars in general comment on an article about a performance car. What is it? Life too boring for you? Maybe if you had a performance car, you would understand why people take an interest in them and then maybe your lives wouldn't be as boring.

    Jeda of Melbourne Posted on 22 February 2013 9:31am
  • @Kosta, As a matter of fact I drive an Audi RS4. I for one am all for cars with usable and exhilarating power, but I say again a useless bogan ute, with so much power the only thing this vehicle is destined for, is killing its driver as it goes backward into some immovable object because as you yourself say, the driver WILL NOT be able to handle the power. Maybe if you put 300KG of concrete in the back it might be a worthwhile drive.

  • Shame the car is so butt ugly. LED lights look like a 5 dollar special from the counter of Aldi. It is still a commodore and still a waste of money compared to what else is out there. The legal speed limit in Australia is 110 km/h so have fun having the police riding your bumper.

  • andy of qld Posted on 21 February 2013 2:57pm - you don't get it.

    sam of adelaide Posted on 22 February 2013 9:02am
  • Over priced the HSV's are.. could get a custom SS/V with a lot of good bits for a lot less.. paying for a name.

    Stan of Perth Posted on 22 February 2013 8:26am
  • Nice car over rated though basically a GTS front on a ute

    Dan of Syd Posted on 22 February 2013 7:00am
  • Meh!!! The thing don't even play MP3....

    Goldy of Goldy Posted on 22 February 2013 6:17am
  • utterly useless to have 480kw + A stock FPV F6 will accelerate faster than this...

    nik Posted on 21 February 2013 9:13pm
  • This thing has two green leaves for its green rating - what is the test? that it doesn't run on pure shale oil? Give me a break.

    the Truth of Melbourne Posted on 21 February 2013 8:52pm
  • Another confused butt ugly HSV. Stick with my F6 310 Ute

    Rod of Narre Posted on 21 February 2013 8:47pm
  • andy- Harden up. In any country in which the revenue gatherers are allowed more than the output of a small four stroke generator, everyone needs 480kW.

    Paul Rain Posted on 21 February 2013 8:01pm
  • a ute is a work car. Is anyone going to use this for work and risk scratching or denting it? And what bloody good are 30 and 35 profile tyres. Besides which (as the seller is fond of quoting Top Gear), Top gear have proven that lower profile tyres on bigger wheels actually degraded the performance on their track when compared with higher profile tyres on smaller wheels. It always makes me laugh when people upgrade their car with bits and pieces that either are useless (e.g. huge spoilers that only work properly at race track speeds or real low profile tyres and huge wheels on off road or work vehicles or fancy "dial it in" exhausts or crazy, and illegal, lights) or pointless. I love cars but the upgrades have to mean something besides just looks.

  • I have the best wife ever, but I will trade her for this ute.

    Shano of mulgrave Posted on 21 February 2013 4:50pm
  • Where's my flannie and wants a ute.

    Grade A Bogan Posted on 21 February 2013 4:07pm
  • Yeah because everyone needs 480kw, very usefull past a 40 school zone or on a wet day, just dont even breathe on the accelerator, and too bad if you sneeze (and plant it)

    andy of qld Posted on 21 February 2013 3:57pm
  • I have a small penis. I must buy this car.

    man size of boganville Posted on 21 February 2013 3:12pm
  • @CarNut of Melburne, you must be a Toyota driver if you cannot cope with the power output.

    Kosta of brighton Posted on 21 February 2013 2:23pm
  • More power than an Ferrari Enzo with a much, much better boot. For a fraction of the price and still with a warranty. Sounds like an amazing car actually.

    alex Posted on 21 February 2013 12:55pm
  • Ahhh a bogan ute, a bogan ute with so much power it will be undriveable. I give it a month before it's back in the news, associated with an obituary.

    CarNut of Melburne Posted on 21 February 2013 9:44am
  • Love the i30 ad at the beginning...
