Holden Torana GTR-X Concept 1970

The Holden Torana GTR-X Concept became designed at some stage in the generation of the LC collection Torana, and became critically taken into consideration for manufacturing withinside the early 1970s. The GTR-X had a wedge-formed fibreglass frame proposing a hatchback rear get admission to, and the prototype vehicles had LC Torana GTR XU-1 mechanical components.

The Holden Torana GTR-X Concept seems much like iconic sports activities vehicles of the 1970s, including the Ferrari 308 GT4, Lotus Esprit and the Mazda RX-7. It weighed in at 1,043 kg (2,299 lb) and has a pinnacle velocity of 210 km/h (a hundred thirty mph). The Torana GTR-X in manufacturing could had been the primary Holden automobile to be manufacturing facility equipped with 4 wheel disc brakes.

When Holden launched a promotional brochure approximately the GTR-X, they said - "Its long, glossy hood is accentuated through a low wedge-formed grille. The frame line sweeps up on the rear to an expanded tail mild assembly. Simplicity is the keynote. It is executed through hid headlights, sharp windshield rake, recessed parking and turning lights, and flush petrol filler get admission to and door handles. Front and rear bumpers count on the contour of the frame. To pick out the automobile, the GTR-X identity is contained inside a crisp black and orange stripe jogging parallel to the rocker panel".

The Torana GTR-X became fantastically evolved through Holden from concept, and despite the fact that brochures, pictures and promotional movies have been produced to expose how severe they have been in placing the automobile into manufacturing, the organisation became in the end not able to justify the excessive fee of committing itself to manufacturing given the dimensions of the Australian populace in the ones days.
