    Hey guys just picked up my new car. Bit of an upgrade from the old VS Stato and i'm heaps happy with it!!
    Found it on the net and was speaking to the owner for about a week, left work at lunchtime yesterday, hopped a plane to melbourne and drove it home to adelaide last night, got home at 1am and started work again at 8 haha.

    NAME: Corey
    MODEL- 2001 VX Clubsport R8
    COLOUR- Sting red
    ENGINE- 5.7L LS1 V8
    GEARBOX- T56 6-Speed Manual
    DIFF- Standard LSD, new driveshafts, new cradle and all new bushes.
    MODS- Redback twin 2.5" catback exhaust, crappy double din h/u with pioneer speakers all round and kicker 12" sub.

    I've been looking for a clubby for about a year and didnt find too many that had the options i wanted which were Red/White/Grey paint, Manual, Leather coulsons, big brakes, sunroof.

    this has everything except the brakes... i did a HSV authentication with the VIN number and according to that it had premium brakes as an option so i think someone may have removed them which im not happy about.

    Within 24 hours of buying it, i put superlows in the front, ultras in the rear and bolted my 20" supersports on. Looks 100% tougher i reckon.

    Future mods arent much except enjoy it. Maybe an OTR and mafless tune, change the rear muffler to a pair of hotdogs for a better note, darker tint and a better quality head unit.

    Pics: only got a couple that ill have to upload from my phone, first one is how i bought it, 2nd is how it sits now and a shot of the interior also.

    Let me know what you think!

    mate very nice and in great condition !

    spewing about the premium brakes missing ! they make the car

    for the exhaust take the middle mufflers out and put a set of dogs in and take the rear muffler right out and make it straight through, you'd be suprised how little it will drone if any at all, i can cruise mine 500km's without getting anoyed or a head ache

    enjoy the rig mate !
