Description/extras: At the start of the VL range Holden did not have an unleaded version of the V8 engine available. Many punters felt betrayed by the V8 company’s decision to use the new very popular and powerful RB30 Nissan 6 Cylinder Engine in their line up. Incredibly, sales started off extremely well as for the first time varying from the previous Calais Based Director, the new Calais VL series HDT dubbed the ‘LE’ (As Brock was saving the Director name for another Calais Release), offered the new six Cylinder and the contraversial DB Tech ‘Energy Polarizer’ as standard.

In the cabin, options were ‘all luxury’ with the top of the line Calais trim with bolstered sides available as standard or the Scheel sports seats in either the velour or leather cladding available at the tick of a box.
Also on the option list was a variety of extra enhancements such as the Brock premium sound system, Brock interior, electric sunroof and a car phone. In addition there was the VK Group 3’s steering wheel, optional side and rear skirts or, for the complete look, full side mouldings which replaced the standard Calais items however the base model LE had little bodykit at all receiving just a front letterbox type grille and rear boot spoiler.

The LE was available in any Holden colour, as well as a few new ones and a further suprise was to come later down the track with the six cylinder receiving a ‘GUN’ 150kw Turbo option soon after which surprised and pleased many with it’s smooth and impressive performance

On offer we have this very fine example of the work conducted by HDT in stunning red with contrasting beige leather interior.

The vehicle has covered 125,966 kms.
