GM's Australian unit Holden's new concept, the Coupe 60, celebrates the 60th anniversary of the first made-for-Australia Holden.
Based on the Commodore (available here as the Lumina) platform, the concept shares its rear-wheel drive configuration, but is markably shorter.
However, its styling is seriously aggressive with supercar-like modifications, including a rear air diffuser, boot spoiler, semi-slick tyres, high performance Brembo brakes and side-swept exhausts with alloy tips to add to the racing theme.
Power to the Coupe 60 is provided by a 6.0-litre V8 engine able to run on ethanol. It is mated with a six-speed manual transmission.
Further sports influences are carried across to the interior, which has one-piece carbon fibre seats and a flat-bottomed steering wheel with a nifty "shift light display".
Carbon fibre accents, black suede upholstery and red trim complete the look inside the cabin. The exterior is finished in a Diamond Silver finish.
Holden insists that the coupe will "for the moment ? remain a concept only". What a pity.
