Possibly, the World's Only Left-Hand-Drive Holden Ute Up for Grabs

| |

Are you a fan of GM Holden's famed rear-wheel drive Utes, but the fact that they only come in right-hand drive (RHD) has put you off from buying and using one?

Well, here's your chance to jump into a left-hand drive (LHD) 2003 Holden Ute based on the VY generation Commodore (2002-2004) that has been listed for sale on eBay from a Dutch owner.

The seller says that it's probably "the only LHD Holden Ute in the world", and even though we can't vouch for that, it’s not that you see LHD Utes every day, so if anything else, it is certainly rare.

This particular sports example comes with a Corvette LS3 GT3 rated for an alleged 550hp paired to an automatic transmission, which should provide plenty of visits to your local tire installer.

The car is located in The Netherlands, but the seller says he will ship anywhere. However, before you do that, you will most certainly need to check with local authorities/laws and see if you can actually use the car in your country. If it's registered in The Netherlands, you have a good chance of being able to legally use it in other EU countries, but in the U.S., you'll have a very hard time bringing it over since it doesn't qualify for the 25 year old import law.

The 'Buy it Now' price on eBay is another put off as it stands at a hefty $40,000 (€29,200).

eBay Seller's Description:
