If you’re used to fir­ing up eBay in readi­ness for a spot of VXR win­dow shop­ping, you’re likely to have your work cut out for you when it comes to sourc­ing a Gen-F Maloo R8. Few were sold in the UK, and own­ers tend to be diehards who hang on to their im­mensely pow­er­ful utes.

MWP should be your first port of call. At the time of our photo shoot, Marc’s team was pre­par­ing an R8 for its new owner at the same time as giv­ing a Heron White ex­am­ple a clean bill of health be­fore ad­ver­tis­ing the mega-ute for sale. Marc’s a mas­sive fan of the hugely en­ter­tain­ing Holden; the MWP boss owns two Maloos, one be­ing the in­de­pen­dently im­ported blue R8 you see here, the other a red Vaux­hall­badged R8 LSA. If he hasn’t got the Maloo you’re af­ter in stock, it’s highly likely he can find it for you.

The HSV & Holden Own­ers UK Face­book group is also a good shout. Mem­bers are keen to help one an­other source their next Monaro, Maloo or VXR8. Like Marc, the group’s mem­bers will also be able to pro­vide help­ful ad­vice re­gard­ing the process of im­port­ing a Maloo di­rect from Aus­tralia.
