Walkinshaw Performance Series II Commodore Unleashed
text size: A- A+
However, the supersaloon has just received an impressive performance upgrade coming from Walkinshaw Performance (WP). We have to start by mentioning that the tuning company belongs to Tom Walkinshaw, the man who created Holden’s HSV performance division.
Introduced at the 2010 Australian International Motor Show, the modification kit has seen the vehicle’s 6.0 liter V8 engine being rebuilt and receiving an Edelbrock 230 supercharger. The powerplant now delivers a level of power and torque that could easily allow it to fight the German Power War soldiers: 617 hp and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft).
The car has also been gifted with a matching stopping power, as it has received a high-performance braking system that uses 378 mm rotors for the front axle and 365 mm discs for the rear axle, with six-piston calipers all-round.
To handle the extra power, the saloon has also been fitted with a sports suspension provided by Bilstein. The list of modifications also includes a rear deck lip spoiler, a custom WP interior, as well as a Rockford Fosgate audio system.
The WP Series II Supercar will only allow 23 mortals to enjoy its performance and will come finished in Panorama Silver. The car has a starting price of AU$99,990 ($98,810).
“Today’s betray is a perfection of the genuine mangle by year for Walkinshaw Performance, with a key of brand new products as well as an industry-first driveline warranty. The package is a result of hundreds of hours of contrast, excellence as well as discussions in between a WP team as well as the suppliers to move to marketplace the truly singular product,” said Walkinshaw Performance CEO, Craig Wilson.
