Unlike many concept cars that often appear excessively futuristic, the Holden Hurricane Concept boasted a design that was both timeless and alluring. With its sleek, low-slung profile, this vehicle was akin to a fine whisky, a true masterpiece. What truly set this car apart, though, was its cutting-edge technological features.

One notable innovation was the inclusion of rear-facing cameras, a digital dashboard display, and a navigation system that relied on magnets, a novel departure from the conventional GPS systems. Standing at a mere 39 inches in height, the Holden Hurricane Concept sported an electro-mechanical canopy with a forward pivot, a remarkable and distinctive feature.

Under the hood, this remarkable vehicle was powered by a 4.2-liter V8 engine, capable of generating a formidable 262 brake horsepower. It was also designed with the occupants' safety and comfort in mind, boasting rear seatbelts and a sophisticated climate control system.
The Holden Hurricane Concept was more than just a car; it was a testament to innovation, a harbinger of the future. It encapsulated the spirit of an era where automotive engineering reached new heights. While the concept car never made it to mass production, it remains a cherished piece of automotive history. *** [EKA [06062015]  | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BANDITSANDCO | AUTOBLOG | NETCARSHOW ]
