HSV W1; GT3 RS; Elfin; A61 Supra; DB9: Classifieds of the Week

By Chris Thompson, 29 May 2018 News

Classifieds of the Week feature

Big asks and bargains currently up for grabs

This week we’ve gathered five cars you’re not likely to see on the road, which you could go buy for yourself – if you’ve got the coin.

2017 HSV GTSR W1 - $295,000

This isn’t so much a suggestion of a car to buy, as a listing to watch.

Despite auctions recently failing to break the upper reaches of W1 asking prices, this car’s set right up near the big 3-0-0.

Sure, it’s an amazing car given it started life as a humble Commodore before being shipped off to HSV, but it was also meant to sell for more than $100,000 under this asking price.

2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS - $479,990

Okay, someone should absolutely buy this car – and actually drive the thing.

With only 710 kilometres showing on the clock, this rare ‘ultraviolet’ atmo Porker has likely not seen many windy roads, let alone a race track, in its time.

Besides, when was the last time you saw a GT3 RS, let alone a purple one?

2008 Elfin MS8 Streamliner - $69,000

One of a limited list of Australian-built sports cars, the Elfin MS8 is (as many are) powered by a GM LS V8 engine. A 5.7-litre LS1, in this case.

If you want to know more about the MS8, we’ve written plenty on it. But this one in particular looks to be in great condition with only 26,000km on the odo.

It’s based in WA, so if you live on the east coast like most Australians, you’d either need to truck it over, or go on quite the adventure to get it home.

1984 Toyota Supra (Gen 2) - $9,500

It’s not often you get photos of the underside of a car in its listing, but the seller of this second-gen Supra is keen to prove it’s in good nick.

MOTOR Preview: 2019 Toyota Supra

A reasonable 237,000km+ odo reading might be the main deterrent when considering this car, but it comes with spares, and has had “many” parts replaced.

It’s also less than $10,000. So it’s got that going for it.

2005 Aston Martin DB9 - $97,500

The successor to the DB7 (DB8 might suggest it was a V8, how times have changed!), this V12-powered Aston

It’s not quite the Bond-spec DBS, but 336kW of grand touring British V12 should keep you happy short of driving too hard.

That is, if you can justify the almost-six-figure asking price.
