Keep an Eye on the Unique Cars Competition Page for Our Next Competition

The Holden LJ Torana GTR XU-1 changed the face of Australian performance motoring, proving that you didn’t need a V8 to be a bona-fide muscle car.

It’s giant-killing performances ended the domination of Ford’s GT-HO Phase III and gave Peter Brock his first Bathurst win in 1972. With a pedigree like that, it’s little wonder the XU-1 has become an Aussie motoring icon – and a perfect Unique Cars giveaway car candidate.

When we picked up ‘our’ XU-1, we wondered whether it would need the usual attention we lavish on our giveaway cars – it already looked mint!

But that pretty purple paintwork hid a few surprises, which have since been rectified thanks to Corporate Auto Body and Rare Spares.

In the words of Uncle Phil, “it was good when we started, now it’s sensational.”

Chris from Corporate Auto Body adds, “it looks 100 percent better than when Holden made it!”

Total prize value is $85,000 including delivery and on-road costs. Enter as many times as you like using original Unique Cars coupons, enter online, or subscribe for more chances to win. Entries close on 10 July 2012!
