With the departure of Peter Brock, Holden needed new blood to run and build its performance vehicles division. Holden turned to British-based Tom Walkinshaw Racing and Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) was born. The Commodore Group A was a homologation special referred to by many nicknames, including “Walkinshaw” and “Walky” for its heritage, or “Plastic Fantastic” and “Winged Warrior” for the heavy use of plastic in the bold body kit. The aero kit, which some considered excessive, was functional, reducing drag by up to 25 percent. The car quickly sold the 500 models required to let the Commodore go racing and 250 more were produced to satisfy demand. The cars were produced in only one color, “Panorama Silver,” named after the famed Bathurst racing circuit at Mount Panorama. Among Australian muscle cars, the model is a head turner that has held its value over the years.
