A V8 Holden driven to victory by Aussie superstar Chaz Mostert has sold at auction for $610,000 AUD.

Mostert first raced the Holden ZB Commodore to victory at Symmons Plains Raceway in April this year, for what was both his first ever win driving a Holden and his first since joining Walkinshaw Andretti United in 2020. The car is also set to compete at the 2021 Bathurst 1000 later this year and other events as part of the 2022 Supercars Championship.

It will be delivered to the buyer in racing condition, complete with a V8 engine, the livery of the new owner’s choice and a Gen II chassis, which is the last of its kind ever to be built by Walkinshaw Andretti.

Two punters became locked in a bidding war for the vehicle, which will be delivered to the winning bidder at the conclusion of the 2022 Supercars Championship.

“Never before have we seen a complete race-winning Supercar with its V8 racing engine go to auction; this moment will go down in Australian motorsport history,” said Lee Hames of Lloyds Auctions, the auction site that sold the vehicle.

Having made a name for himself driving Fords, Mostert crossed over to Walkinshaw Andretti last year, finishing on the podium in five of 25 races for an overall finish of 5th.

He didn’t win a race in his first year with the team but finished third at the Bathurst 1000 alongside teammate Warren Luff.

Mostert has twice tasted victory in 2021 so far, first in race eight at Symmons Plains and then in race 12 at Hidden Valley Raceway in June.

Rare Holdens attract big money under the hammer – over the weekend, the same auction house sold a road-legal HSV GTSR W1 4 Door Build #017 to an enthusiast for $750,000, while a 1996 Holden HSV VS GTSR BUILD #001 in XU3 Yellah was previously sold for $1 million.

“Holdens continue to appreciate in value; anything of a limited build, celebrity affiliation, significant history or chrome bumpers just keeps going up in value,” Hames said.
