1:18 HSV W427 – Heron White
Unveiled at the 2008 Melbourne Motor Show, after months of media and public speculation, the W427 generated an unprecedented amount of hype and excitement from the motoring public. Boasting the largest capacity engine ever built in an Australian production car, it quickly garnered everyone’s attention. The dry sumped 7.0 litre LS7 pushed out an eye watering 375kw (500 hp) and 640 Nm of torque. Enough to propel the hefty 1874 kg brute to a claimed 0-100 km/h time of 4.7 seconds, and a quarter mile of 13 seconds. At the time it was supercar territory numbers and left a lasting impact.
It wasn’t only the engine that was impressive however. To pull up that warp speed the W427 also required an impressive set of brakes and so, it was fitted with monster 380mm front discs with 6 piston calipers.
Although the performance aspects of the car were unrivalled, the W427 also offered a fantastic array of driver comforts. A unique W427 branded red leather interior combined with all the modern amenities that HSV could possibly fit in 2008. A multi-function steering wheel, Bluetooth, optional sat nav, climate control, cruise control, rear park assist, automatic headlamps, trip computer, and top of the range sound system just to name a few.
Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, a high level of detail and immaculate finishing, this model will be a limited edition and comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. It’s a must have model for HSV and Australian motoring fans alike.
