Holden has resurrected the company’s groundbreaking 1969 Hurricane Concept with a complete restoration, one that unlocks past technology that was rudimentary at the time, and now quite common amongst modern luxury cars. In the late ’60s, engineers relied on genuine ingenuity to load the Hurricane with equal parts performance and technology, with features like a turn-by-turn navigation system, automatic climate control and a rear-view camera. A group of dedicated Holden workers took it upon themselves to put the Hurricane back in working order using as many original parts as possible. That includes the experimental four-barrel 253ci V8 mounted mid-ship. Holden has been working to restore the Hurricane since 2006, and now that it’s finished, the concept will be on display at the Motorclassica Car Show in Melbourne from October 21-23, 2011.
