The world’s fastest pick-up was released in Australia in 2014. Holden Special Vehicles unveiled the world’s fastest pick-up in September and the first 150 sold out in one day despite a THB 2.7 million price tag.
With even more demand, Holden Special Vehicles then built another 250 versions of the HSV GTS Maloo (including 10 for New Zealand) because some longstanding customers missed out.
The HSV GTS Maloo is powered by a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 with 430 kW of power and 740 Nm of torque and can do the zero to 100 km/h dash in 4.5 seconds, as fast as a Porsche. It also has the biggest brakes ever fitted to a pick-up anywhere in the world. With that kind of performance, the owners of these ‘super pick-ups’ will need the big brakes.
