Feature Car: Leo Leonidas’ HDT VN Lexcen ‘RARE’

02 Nov

Upon first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking this was an HDT Aero based on the usual Holden VN Commodore. However, you’d be wrong. This is Leo Leonidas’ HDT Aero, based upon a Toyota Lexcen and running a V6 instead of the usual injected 5L V8.

Young Leo found this car sitting at a wrecking yard, dumped by the original and sole owner after doing around 300,000kms. As it turned out, the car was a totally legit specimen – one of only four ever built for a Toyota dealership in the 1990s. You can read all about the incredible story of the car and Leo’s almost single-handed restoration in issue 189 of Street Commodores, on sale this week.

This shoot was actually our first ever commissioned car photo shoot, performed in 2010. We’re pretty proud of how it came out, considering we’d only done one short test shoot with the flash gear a few days prior. We hope you like what you see and remember that you can download FREE desktop wallpaper versions of the six images from our Flickr page by CLICKING HERE or on the thumbs below.
