1970 Holden GTR-X Concept

One of the best looking cars to ever surface from Australia has to be the Holden Torana GTR-X. Designed to be a low-production sports car for the 1970 model year, the two-seater had a sublime long-nose, a short-tail design that would have been in good company with the Chevy Corvette, Datsun Fairlady/Z, and the Mazda RX-7. Despite going as far as developing several prototypes, the Torana GTR-X was never put into production.

  1. It never went into production because:-
    1/ The Datsun 240Z came on the Australian market at a price which GMH would not have been able to meet
    2/ The dictators at GM in Detroit said “NO” as they often did with their overseas subsidiaries.
    GM-USA stifled many great projects and even export plans presented by their overseas divisions. (Holden, Opel, Vauxhall, SAAB etc.) GM is an expert at killing a Brand.
