Codenamed RD 001, the Hurricane is a midengine, rear-wheel drive, two-seat sports car that used technology that was years ahead of its time.
The Hurricane's V8 engine offered advanced design components such as the four-barrel carburetor--a feature that wouldn't be seen on a production 253ci Holden V8 until the late 1970s.
The 42-year-old concept car, codenamed RD 001, debuted at the 1969 Melbourne Motor Show.
The Hurricane used advanced technologies and techniques when it came to the power train. It was powered by an experimental 4.2-liter (253-cubic-inch) V8 that was a precursor to the Holden V8 engine program that entered production in late 1969.
