    VP GTS Build Number History.

    Hi Guy's

    I am a big enthusiast of the VP GTS and would like to put together a database on these beautiful beasts.

    If you have owned one / own one currently / or know the history of one please PM or post a response and I’ll update the info.

    Apparently there are only 2 full optioned with rare leather grp A interior, sunroof & ride hieght can anybody confirm this and if so colours and build numbers.


    BTW i know some went to NZ and i have a few questions

    1. Were they all V6's that went to NZ or some V8
    2. were the NZ number over and above the 130?
    3. how many went to NZ (i have heard 15 - 35)

    Thanks for all your efforts.

    Disclaimer: This information is for a guide only as I have not personally confirmed every car on this list, I can only confirm build 076 (Mine) & build 113 (HSVWGN) as we are both part of the HSV CLUB OF VICTORIA and I have personally seen these cars with my own two eyes.

    The 130 build number would include any V8's that went to NZ.

    The NZ VP GTS V6 was a seperate model and a continuation of the previous NZ VN and VL GTS models. A guy i work with owned a VN GTS many years ago when he lived in NZ.

    Hi Mate,

    Interior trim

    there are three types of trim options:
    1. SD seats
    2. HSV GROUP A STYLE
    3. HSV GROUP A STYLE WITH BLUE LEATHER BOLSTERS.

    Thanks
    Daniel

    Number 095 is white with standard trim.

    Number 119 is red with GPA trim and blue leather bolsters

    He seems a little confused. Anthracite was the most common colour (not the rarest as he says) and the interior in that one is standard, making it the most common and low spec variety of the VP GTS's.

    .

    careful quoting "2 with leather as that isn't confirmed. 2 with full options comes from HSV Signature of Success which also isnt confirmed.
    The 2 trim styles we do know are
    1. HSV Langton sports seats built on SS frame, are a feature of the blue interior. Matching door trim inserts have GTS embroidered into the cloth.
    2. Optional Devenish seats with venus trim, suede trimmed console and fully lined door panels
    3. I'd leave the leather bolsters until its confirmed factory.


    #85 and #125 are both red with the optional devenish seats and venus trim, seude trimmed console and fully lined door panels
    #81 is grey with the same trim as 85 & 125

    The VL & VN GTS models sent to NZ are Holden. Not HSV
    The cars that went to NZ are included in that 130 build

    I think it's safe to say this is a factory option. I'd never seen nor heard of it before my mate bought one with this trim. Upon much closer inspection of it it's certainly not something done by a local trim shop by a previous owner. It's also identical to the other red one on this forum. I'll try and get some detailed pics if anyone's interested. Looks like there are more that just two as well. There is already 4 identified in this thread, which is only 6 hours old.

    Chris.
