    Wasn't the white one manual? Or was there another one? Was the manual fitted by HSV or a dealer?

    The white manual was a development mule. It was a manual commodore executive that HSV built as an SV5000 for durability testing. It didnt have the luxury or weight of the production SV5000 and apparently it was a weapon.
    the white production car was a full luxury vehicle with auto. Yes it is part of the Sultan of Brunei's collection. And no, he didnt have a black VN Group A (in case anyone asks). That was the crown prince of johor

    I think it has been a good decade since that head unit was worth $2000

    This is a pretty good car for the price.... if you wanted a project and were going to modify/spend money, this car would be a great pick up to get into an early girl.... the interior still looks quality and if I had my time again, I would look at a HSV vn/vp etc etc as the parts are easier to get & you're not getting torn a new a55hole by ebay thieves..... I would never do another VL project again unless the car was absoloute concourse to start with.

    New paint, no tint, big red harrops, Gold 20inch walky wheels & this VN would start to look fat!!
