The Holden Hurricane was experimental research vehicle, revealed in May 1969. The car a a mid-mounted 4147cc V8 Holden engine, producing 280bhp. The two-seater Hurricane displayed an electronic digital instrument displays, station-seeking radio, Comfortron automatic temperature control air conditioning and a Pathfinder automatic route indicator. Rear vision was provided by a TV screen in the console, connected to a wide-angle lens camera activated by the ignition. As its code name suggests, RD 001 was the first product of the GMH Research and Development section, staffed by a small squad of engineers working in conjunction with the Advanced Styling Group at the Fishermans Bend Technical Centre. RD 001 stood just 990mm high and had no doors in the conventional sense. An electro-mechanically powered canopy swung forward over the front wheels, combining with twin "astronaut type" power elevator seats which rose up and pivoted forward, along with the steering column, for ease of access. Occupants were lowered to a semi-reclining position and the roof closed over. The car could not be started until the canopy was locked down, the seats fully lowered and the driver"s fully retractable, automatically locking seat belt secured. Among other safety innovations were a foam-lined fuel tank, integral headrests, the digital readouts, interior padding and a fire warning system. The wind tunnel-tested fibreglass body was finished in an experimental aluminium flake-based metallic orange paint and mounted on a steel box section perimeter frame with rubber insulated mountings. Under the Hurricane"s pivoting engine hood, set forward of the rear axle, was an experimental 253 cubic inch Holden-designed and built V8 with a four-barrel carburetor.


Компания Holden восстановила автомобиль Hurricane, который был впервые представлен в 1969 году. На его реставрацию было потрачено пять лет.

Hurricane – это среднемоторное, заднеприводное купе, которое оснащалось экспериментальным мотором V8 объемом 4,2 литра, развивавшим 262 лошадиные силы. Этот двигатель оснащался четырьмя карбюраторами и стал прототипом серийного мотора V8, который появился в гамме Holden после 1969 года. С нуля до ста километров в час концепт-кар разгонялся за 5,5 секунды. Максимальная скорость машины не уточняется.

Помимо экспериментального мотора, Hurricane стал носителем футуристичных для того времени технологий: например, «навигационной» системы, реализованной с помощью магнитов, которые предполагалось вмонтировать в дорожное полотно на перекрестках. Плюс, камера заднего вида, смонтированная на заднем бампере и передающая изображение на черно-белый телеэкран в салоне.

У Holden Hurricane не было дверей – вместо этого колпак в передней части кабины (лобовое стекло, передние стойки кузова и боковые стекла с частью крыши) поднимался и отодвигался вперед. Сиденья с помощью электропривода отодвигались назад, а руль – вперед, облегчая посадку-высадку.

На концепт-каре использовались инерционные катушки ремней безопасности и автоматический климат-контроль.

Восстановленный автомобиль будет выставлен на шоу классических автомобилей в Мельбурне.
