We’re here to talk about one of their greatest models ever, the Maloo. In fact, this Sting Red example, up for grabs through Dutton Garage, will cost you just under AUD 210,000, which is roughly $153,000.
It’s a Gen-F2 model in GTSR spec, which means that its 6.2-liter LSA V8 engine features a supercharger, a bi-modal air intake and a Hi-flow exhaust system. You could get this car with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic, this one here being the latter.
In terms of power, you’re looking at 583 hp (435 kW) and 545 lb-ft (740 Nm) of torque being sent to the rear wheels through that six-speed auto, which also features Active Select and paddle shifters.
Other noteworthy features include the grey 20-inch forged alloy wheels, HSV Performance brakes, HSV Performance suspension, HSV podium seats with Alcantara trim and leather inserts, a head-up display, Alcantara steering wheel, plus must-have goodies such as a rear-view parking camera with front and rear parking sensors, a dual-zone climate control system, satellite navigation and phone connectivity.
This car is a showstopper, and if you don’t mind the fact that it’s RHD (it depends on where you live), then you’ll be the talk of every car meet, if you can swing for the fences with that price tag, that is.
Oh, and as for that “venom juice” reference in the title, that’s just a little something for all you hardcore DC Comics fans out there.
