litre GM V8
The Holden Coupe 60 was a concept unveiled at the 2008
Melbourne Motor Show. The Coupe 60 is a luxury sports
coupe based on the platform of the Holden VE sedan. The
concept features powerful styling, highlighted by the
pillarless design and V8 supercar inspired cockpit layout
and side-exiting chambered exhaust system with billet
Other racing-derived enhancements include full flat under
body, rear underbody air diffuser and functional rear
deck-lid spoiler with unique designed LED tail lamps.
The interior of the Holden Coupe 60 also has several unique
features. They include one piece carbon
fibre bucket seats (featuring leather and suede pad design) and
a sports-inspired flat bottomed steering wheel with integrated shift light display and LCD
sports instrument cluster. The high gloss carbon
fibre carries through to doors and rear trim providing
a contrast to the leather trimmed instrument panel and
black suede trimmed pillars, headliners and parcel shelf.
The Holden Coupe 60 is powered by a 6.0 litre V8 incorporating
the latest technologies such as active fuel management
and calibrated for E85 ethanol fuel. This is connected
to a 6-speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels.
GM Holden Chairman and Managing Director Mark Reuss said,
"Coupe 60 is Holden's 60th anniversary gift to its fans
"It highlights Holden's heritage of rear wheel drive performance
whilst looking ahead to the potential offered by new technologies
"This is a vehicle I know our designers would dearly love
to see go into production, but for the moment it has to
remain a concept only," he said.
