1969 Holden Hurricane Concept Car
In an ode of great vehicles of the past, Australian auto-maker Holden is restoring it's first concept car—the 1969 Holden Hurricane.
Codenamed RD 001, the Hurricane is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-seat sports car incorporating an array of innovative features and technology, which was years ahead of its time. Features such as electronic digital instrument displays, station-seeking radio, automatic temperature control air conditioning, rear-vision camera and an automated route finder were all showcased in this ground-breaking vehicle 42 years ago. The Hurricane’s V8 engine featured many advanced design components such as the four-barrel carburettor. The end result was approximately 262hp, a towering power output in 1969 had the power to match its aggressive design.
The Hurricane stole headlines and dropped jaws nationwide when it debuted at the 1969 Melbourne Motor Show. 42 years later, it's design is still to be marveled at.
