One of two built, the GTR-X remains one of the great "what ifs?" of Australian motoring history. Highly developed by Holden from the Torana GTR, the GTR-X came within a hair's breadth of being a production reality, but the project was halted deep into its development.
Reflecting the wedge-shaped supercar designs of the time, the GTR-X was the height of Australian engineering, featuring a stylish fibreglass body, 4-wheel disc brakes and a top speed of 210 kph. Regrettably, high production costs relative to Australia's low demand for that type of cars, are cited as the reason the GTR-X didn't become a reality.
Kindly provided by Holden for the event, the GTR-X will join dozens of other rare and significant classics at this year's RACV Motorclassica, which will be held at the Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne, on 26th -28th October 2012.
This year's event will feature special tributes to Sir Jack Brabham, the 100th Anniversary of the Victorian Motor Show and the 60th Anniversary of Lotus. The climax of the event will be the Collector Car Auction on Sunday 28th.
