BACKDRAFT Commodore Ute




Vehicle: Holden VZ Maloo Commodore Utility

This vehicle has unfortuately been modified to far to be a full registered street car. The car is still presented in full street trim, with working power windows and mirrors. The owner and tuner have been struggling with traction at the track, but the car has run some impressive times for something that weighs in aroung 3750 pounds! This car demands attention and gets it with its unique turbo mounting location and its impressive detail.

All custom pipework and recent fabrication was done by ITP Race Cars.
