    I saw this on Carsales. I'd heard they existed, but I'd never seen one, and this car has supporting documentation, so it appears to be the real deal'
    Good luck with $175K!!

    I knew of the addition to the Clubsport, and seen one for sale (for a quarter of above) about 5 years ago.

    Standard M12 box
    Linear steering rack, standard with the SV6000.
    Factory power steering cooler, special edition VZ's had this.
    362mm front rotors/343mm rears, same as VY GTS.
    Oz Racing Wheels, (from memory, the centre nut look is only a cover). I saw a set of these on gumtree a few months ago.
    Fancy badges (some VZ HSVDT owners put them on their car).

    Stage 2 includes:
    HSV Ohlins Adjustable Performance Suspension, I believe this was an option on the VY GTS?
    Tyre pressure monitoring
    Driver dynamic interface, would love to see one up close. Could be something to aim for VY/Z owners. Was also on the SV6000.
    Set of Pirelli's.

    Stage one was an additional $7,335. Essentially upgrading your Clubsport to a 'GTS' standard. Pretty cheap considering the price difference between the Clubby and GTS... not to mention now 15 years later, the price of those 362 AP's alone.
    Only 30 made according to the above article - unsure if that was for each variant (Clubby, Maloo, Coupe etc) or in total.

    I thought you of all people would've known Pickles!

    "Would've Known"?...I'm glad you think of me that way!!...All is good. But seriously, I've heard about them, I've heard about a 4 door, but this is the first Coupe I've come across.
    I did say that this example had HSV documentation,....which I did not dispute, ....in fact I'm happy to learn that this variant in Coupe form actually exists. In fact, this is THE FIRST real proof that I've seen,......and I'm glad to see it,....another HSV "Special"
    We optioned the 6 spot Aps on our VZ GTO so we know how expensive, how good, and how rare these are.
    30 made?....Could be, but I would doubt that statistic.

    Ohlins were optional on any VZ GTO.
    A mate ordered his manual Turismo GTO with them, Xenons and 6/4 piston brakes back in the day because he wanted something better than his outgoing GTS Coupe.
