STORY OF THE VN SS GROUP A (including specifications)
If full race international Group A Homologation specifications were not enough to elevate this final Group A model to instant classic status, then a recession which cut final production to 302 cemented its place in Australian “muscle car” history. It remains the rarest and last of a proud history of homologation race specials. But the big red meanie is no static display piece. The most comprehensive collection of homologation hardware seen in a local performance car gave the roadgoing VN Group A awesome trans-Australia ground covering ability. The final Group A engine was re-engineered for extra durability and performance with an upgraded four bolt main engine block with special pistons, rods, crankshaft, double row timing chain and myriad other tweaks over the previous Group A to make it bullet proof in endurance races. It was rated at a conservative 215kW which necessitated an equally hefty 6 speed manual transmission, the ZF S6-40, as specified for the Corvette ZR-1. Brakes, wheels and tyres all received attention with the first 17 inch wheel and tyre package on a local production car. If the hardware was not enough, then the next generation Group A aerodynamic body package cut the VN body’s Cd from 0.34 to 0.30 and transformed the Group A’s appearance.
It was finished in a special rich shade of red dubbed Durif red which recalled the colour of the Portuguese Durif grape variety. The cabin received extra attention with new body-hugging Group A seats. On the track, it was the only international Group A model that could take the battle head to head with the awesome Nissan Skyline GT-R at Bathurst. The VN Group A’s standing 400 metre runs in the mid-14 second range and 0-100km/h times well under seven seconds still stand as performance benchmarks.
