    Vt Hsv F1 ???

    I was going through a stack of old unique cars mags ( I have around 150 ). And came across a VT 195i F1 car, apparently a 1 off build by HSV. Does anyone know anything about this car ?? I assume it was a Grand Prix compertition give away ??? Again thought it maybe of interest to others.

    sounds and looks like a clubsport that some ricer got hold of. those blue wheels do NOT suit the car...
    cant quite tell to be sure but it looks like the hrt logo on the side where "clubsport" or "gts" normally would be.

    surely any "F1" model would have to be at least to the spec of a gts. not a midway point between clubsport and gts, without even having the stroker motor... maybe a custom paint job wouldnt go astray either, instead just the standard vt hsv blue...

    HSV have done a few single model cars.
    One that comes to mind is the HSV VR SS I posted on here a few years ago. It wasn't an HSV enhanced job but a special giveaway. Came with Full HSV interior and build tag. Was Maranello Red with colour coded VR GTS wheels.
    I had the competition details and photo then SV90 found a snippet of the winner taking delivery
