    From memory I think they had the 177KW Group 111 engine, and the same running gear as the Group 111.
    As far as options were concerned, there wasn't a specific range for that car, but if ya had the dollars, anything from the HDT option list could be fitted.

    Link here https://hdt.com.au/showroom/vk/vk-sl-group/ (hope it works) to the SL Group A specs, Pickles DP's car is pictured in the link, they came in white, redd, silver and Waltons blue. The car Pickles knows and has mentioned would have to be the pick of em all.

    Hey Smitty, just gotta what AWESOME info you have put up in this thread.
    I would suggest that some(lots!) of the stuff you have put up would have never been seen by most enthusiasts.
    Well done, Pickles.

    AFAIK... one handbuilt prototype and another using normal production
    tooling /assembly methods

    Don;t know about the 1st one.. but the 2nd one
    was/has been on display at the Melbourne Museum
    for geez... quite a few years now (after it was gifted
    to the museum by the guy who got it when the maker
    the company Ilinga P/L went bust ... I recollect Ilinga
    had a problem with drivetrain durability (busted diffs? gearboxes?)
    and did not have the funds to overcome that

    Goodbye Ilinga... the company and the car
