Holden Hurricane Concept

However, this rhetoric held little weight, and only the production-worthy engine found its way into the road cars.
Inside, Hurricane had an array of extraneous instrumentation to convince any onlookers that the driver car could pilot to moon.
As for the safety features the concept comes with a foam-lined fuel tank, integrated roll-over bar, digital instrument readouts, ignition safety locks, interior padding and a fire warning system.
And despite its 1969 launch the Hurricane has been offered with features such as electronic digital instrument displays, station-seeking radio, automatic temperature control air conditioning, rear-vision camera and an automated route finder.
