Walkin­shaw per­for­mance

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle News -


would you feel about lib­er­at­ing 500 kilo­Watts – that’s 670 horse­power in the old num­bers – and 800 New­ton-me­tres from your 6-litre VE or VF Com­modore?

What about 550 and 980 if your cur­rent drive is a 6.2-litre HSV car?

Those are the num­bers touted by Walkin­shaw Per­for­mance for its lat­est force-fed up­grade, limited to just 50 pack­ages.

Of­fi­cially de­vel­oped to cel­e­brate 30 years of mo­tor­sport suc­cess in Aus­tralia, since Tom Walkin­shaw con­quered Mount Panorama (for Jaguar in 1985), it’s known as the Walkin­shaw Rac­ing Limited Edi­tion Su­per­charger Pack­age.

“From the be­gin­ning of this process, our goal was to en­gi­neer the most pow­er­ful up­grade to date for a road car from WPP with­out com­pro­mis­ing drive­abil­ity,” says company boss, Tony Har­ris.

“It pro­duces a level of ex­cite­ment never felt be­fore from a WPP-en­hanced ve­hi­cle. It evokes pas­sion in a way that few can re­late to – un­less per­haps you drive a V8 Su­per­car.”

The key to the new go is a camshaft change, cov­ered by war­ranty, which works with the Ea­ton su­per­charger, high-flow in­jec­tors, a wa­ter-to-air in­ter­cooler, 12-inch in­take run­ners and more.

The pack­age is not cheap at $24,490, but the price cov­ers all the parts and in­stal­la­tion, as well as tun­ing of each car.
