Today’s automotive world is no stranger to limited-edition models. Several manufacturers are known to offer a wide range of low-volume vehicles, including cars that come with either enhanced performance, exclusive visual features, or both. Limited-edition cars generate a lot of buzz and usually command a hefty premium over the standard sticker. But how about limited-edition superchargers, have you ever heard of something like that? In case you didn’t, this is where Walkinshaw Racing and its Supercharger Package, limited to only 50 units, comes in.

For those of you not familiar with Walkinshaw Performance, it’s a company founded by former racing driver Tom Walkinshaw. The venture is known for its involvement with the Arrows Formula One team and other racing projects under the Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) name. Walkinshaw Performance is the successor organization of Tom’s previous company, and its Racing division races Holden Commodores in Australia’s V8 Supercar championship since 2009.

As you might have already guessed, Walkinshaw’s limited-edition Supercharger Pack is only available for Holden vehicles, which means it cannot be had anywhere else in the world. Not even in the U.S., where the current Holden VF Commodore is sold as the Chevrolet SS. That’s too bad, because Walkinshaw’s Supercharger Package will turn any V-8-powered Commodore built between 2006 and 2014 into a real monster. Check out the details below.

Walkinshaw’s WPP 230 Supercharger Package includes Eaton Twin Vortices 2300 Series Gen VI rotors and a heap of upgrades for the engine hosting it. Updates consist of large, high-flow injectors, a water-to-air intercooling package, custom heater hoses, cast-aluminum coil covers, a heavy-duty belt-drive system, and much more. A camshaft and valve spring upgrade is also on the table, alongside a full dyno tune at an authorized Walkinshaw Performance Center and a dual active cat back exhaust.

The pack is compatible with any VE and VF Commodore sedans built between 2006 and 2014, and powered by the 6.0-liter V-8, as well as their beefed-up HSV counterparts. The latter includes both the E Series and the newer Gen-F with the 6.2-liter, V-8 engine under the hood. When added to the 6.0-liter mill, the supercharger increases output to an amazing 670 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. Things get even more insane with the 6.2-liter unit, which can deliver a whopping 737 ponies and 723 pound-feet of twist once Walkinshaw is done meddling with it. The Supercharger Packaged costs $24,490 for either engine, a sticker that includes assembly and delivery.
