Holden Special Vehicles yesterday confirmed it will cap the build of its W427 Supercar at 200 vehicles, with the last car rolling off the production line in 2009.

The W427 program has been a great success, ahead of target and ahead of plan, Managing Director of HSV, Phil Harding said.

We have been delighted with the response to bring to market this unique piece of Australian performance car history. The feedback I have received as I travel around Australia is that our customers want to be part of an even more exclusive club, he said. With the W427, we have designed, built and sold our most exclusive vehicle ever. Orders will close in June 2009.

When we began this program we said we would build no more than 427 W427s in a build-to order process. Existing W427 customers have told us they want to keep their purchase as exclusive as possible and some potential customers have asked us for clarification on exactly how many W427 Supercars we intend to build.

The confirmation of a total build number of 200 does this, Phil Harding said. Current owners will receive a boost from the added exclusivity this announcement brings, whilstthose considering a W427 purchase will need to act quickly before they are all sold out.

Phil Harding said Holden Special Vehicles had learnt a great deal from the W427 program for applying to future projects. The program demonstrates Australian engineering design and ingenuity is alive and well he said.

The W427 will be the benchmark for future HSV niche product programs.
