Manufacturers produce concept vehicles for a variety of reasons. Some preview a new direction for design language, others gauge public interest in a particular vehicle and some are unveiled to production ready looks. The 1970 Holden Torana GTR-X concept is the latter. This gorgeous wedge shaped Holden coupe was as close to production it could be before Holden scrapped the idea last minute. It was based upon the Torana GTR XU-1 coupe, but was given a total redesign with plenty of stylish features such as the pointed nose, steeply raked windshield and pop-up headlamps (we miss those).

  1. The 1970 Holden Torana GTR-X did not go into production because of the Datsun 240Z which started to come off the production line in 1969 at a price which Holden could not meet. I have seen both the GTR-X and the Holden Hurricane. Thankfully the originals have been restored and held in the Holden collection.
