    Isn't the owner the same that ordered the Panorama Silver W427? I doubt they're overly concerned with resale but it's still a one off vehicle.

    The two black Toohey's VN Group A's still held their value just fine and they were painted after the fact
    My understanding is that a completed GTSR was resprayed. It was "resprayed" with the knowledge & agreeance of HSV, but is not a factory job.
    Wasn't the panorama silver car a "öne off", for Tom?
    Yes the VN Group As did hold their value, you are correct there, for a while they didn't, & I'm not sure of their value now, and I believe one of them has been modified, big engine etc, but in the passage of time, if either of these cars are in a condition close to the way they were delivered, I think their value would be Ok, certainly not above an original car, but not far away.

    Panorama silver was an option on any W427 but had to be resprayed and reassembled by HSV.

    The car in question 100% has XU3 yellow on the HSV build plate. There is also a yellow W1 ute for the same customer.

    My mail is there is 4 x W1 Utes.

    My mail is there is 4 x W1 Utes. 1 is yellow, 1 is a mat black for Ryan Walkinshaw, 1 x is for a GMH executive and they are going to Auction the last one.
    I'm not surprised it's on the build plate, just like the two Panorama Silver W427's (minus the show car). Both cars were resprayed by Walkinshaw performance, being originally silver in colour. It would make sense that the XU3 Yella GTSR W1's were also resprayed by Walkinshaw performance, although it could be another company.

    The Panorama Silver W427 shown in this article is build number M001, HSV's show car which is a prototype. It was advertised by Dutton Garage in September 2016, if you can recall. This particular collector also purchased from Dutton the race prepared Monaro HSV GTS-R prototype, also seen in this article. Although he may also own one of the two Panorama Silver customer cars.

    The owner bought these 2 at the same time as ordering his W1 in XU3 Yella, I was lucky enough
    to get to detail these 2.
