History of the Peter Brock HDT VK SS
Holden made the decision to drop the SS name for the new VK model, but after seeing its value, HDT adopted it as their base model vehicle for the VK series. Featuring a distinct ‘SS’ logo, stripe, 15inch aero wheels and the same boot spoiler as seen on the Group 3, the was a head-turner. The interior features HDT Scheel seats with the rear trimmed to match, a 380mm Momo Steering Wheel as well an HDT gearknob. The engine is the same as Group 3 and produces 177kws. It’s mated to an M21 4 Speed Transmission and a 3.08 limited-slip differential, which further increases the car’s speed capacity by 35%.
Many customers opted for the SS body kits and 16-inch wheels in addition to their purchase, but the base variant had only minimal styling enhancements
