    VP Senator 5000i

    Well, one VP left the garage and what do you know, I regretted it. So I jump on gum tree yesterday and see this up for sale. Did my checks, spoke to the owner and paid my deposit. It's coming to brisbane very soon.

    Some details
    93 VP II Senator 5000i
    220,000kms
    Books and history
    I am the 3rd owner
    Needs paint and minor rust repair
    Stock standard apart from exhaust and stereo.
    Has factory air box which will be fitted.

    Pretty stoked as I think I got a good deal.

        Won't be doing anything to it other then finding original stereo and repaint it.

        No drop tank. Car is stock besides cat back aftermarket headunit.

            Definitely. The passenger and rear seat are good.

                  Very different. The previous clubsport was special because it was a 5th anniversary. But that's only cosmetic on the non 5000i edition. So it was a basic 180kw clubsport in a different trim.

                  This car is a senator 5000i. It is different in trim/ engine/ specifications to a standard senator and clubsport. the 5000i comes with forged pistons/ roller rockers/ hydraulic cam/ more compression and power compared to the others. Also comes standard with Devinish bucket seats and upgraded brakes. The clubsport 5000i received the grpA 4 bolt mains bitten end.

                      Also a 4 bolt mains block if I remember correctly.

                          Ah memories. My username is from my car at the time, HSV Senator 5000i no 136/136. Canterbury blue. The car had a heap of mods though including a 355ci motor. Was a lovely car.

                          Yours looks good for the kms. Is it the pics that indicate a non standard colour? Is it actually Senator Quartz (deepish purple)?

                              Wow, I thought I had seen every colour available on a 5000i but not seen this colour before. I would contact HSV to confirm but I'm guessing this is the only one in this colour. Unlike the regular VP Senator, all 5000i were originally meant to be Senator Quartz but quite a few ended up in different factory colours. I always thought Empire Red was more solid.
