"Bullet on Wheels", HDT boss Harry Firth's version of the ultimate Australian muscle car. Insanely fast and built with one mission in mind, to blow Ford GT-HO off the face of the map at Bathurst in 1972.

Only problem was, Holden had to build at least 200 of them for public sale to qualify for the race. This was one of the cars that got politicians bothered about road safety. It erupted into the infamous media 'Super Car Scare' and killed the car only weeks from production.

With 5.0 Litre V8 Power it could match the qualifying pace of Moffats GT-HO easily.

This car is a replica
