AUSTRALIA: HSV Maloo R8 (3,794 lbs; 425 hp; 4.9 sec 0-60; top speed 168 mph) More than a quarter-century before Chevy introduced the El Camino, Ford Australia built a combination coupe/pickup in direct response to a farmer’s request for a vehicle to go to church in on a Sunday and which can carry our pigs to market on Mondays. In June 2006, a regular production Z Series Maloo R8 broke the record for the world’s fastest production performance pickup, at 271 km/h, (168 mph) beating the previous record holder, a Dodge Ram SRT-10 by 22 km/h. The majority of the testing for the VF was completed in Australia but it was also driven in Germany, 8 the Middle East, North America and Sweden. In July 2015, HSV launched the limited edition Clubsport R8 25th Anniversary to commemorate the nameplate.
