Today at the Melbourne Auto Show, visitors got a chance to drool on the floor. That is because Holden Coupe 60 was unveiled to celebrate the company’s 60th diamond anniversary. It’s a little different from the VE Commodore sedan, being 60mm shorter but with a great front view and swollen fender flares.
It screams “I have muscles all over” and it’s true. A 6.0 liter flexfuel V8 engine powers the beast, has a 6-speed manual gearbox, Brembo brakes and side-exiting exhaust tips. Now that I’m stunned on the exterior but I’m sure the interior is going to be amazing: it has one-piece carbon fiber seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and a LCD instrument cluster.
Can you imagine Holden Coupe 60 could go into production? “With Coupe 60 we think we have designed a car that has the potential to write another chapter in the book of Holden icons” they said.
