    Его инженерное искусство, великолепный дизайн и отличная электроника пополняют концепт, который всё ещё впечатляет даже сорок с лишним лет спустя. The entire restoration process has been driven primarily by volunteer labour from Holden designers and engineers in their spare time.

A hydraulically-powered canopy opens upwards and forward over the front wheels, combined with twin "astronaut type" power-elevating seats which rise up and pivot forward, along with the steering column for ease of access.

    More than a month. Nobody had seen anything like its radical dart-like profile before. It was clear from my first sighting that there was never any intention to build the Hurricane, yet the concept did provide a window to the future. Its science-fiction-like technology included on-board navigation, a rear-mounted camera to account for no rear window, automatic air conditioning, digital instrumentation, oil-cooled front disc brakes, tilt steering column, adjustable pedals, and, most dramatically, no doors.



    Designer Don DaHarsh developed the American scale model to full size and along with Ambor, former aeronautical engineer Ed Taylor, and body engineer Jack Hutson, the team clothed the steel spaceframe in an epoxy-resin body. However, the American scale model only shows conventional door shutlines. As the one-piece hydraulic roof canopy — with its massive wrap-around Plexiglas pillarless windshield, without wipers — opens, it simultaneously electrically raises the fixed seats.

    Some former Holden employees believed the images of the car moving at the Proving Ground were only taken at a slow shutter speed, after the car had been pushed. To the delight of those involved in saving the Hurricane, Holden made contact with DaHarsh during the restoration.

    It was then stuffed away in the wooden crate that was used to transport it, and stored in a Holden Service garage. Later, it was saved from Holden apprentices who were about to scrap it because they perceived it was no longer of any use. It was one of the inspirations that led me to car design. I saw it the last time I was down there. The other executive who was prepared to help fund the return to perfection was Mark Reuss, then CEO of Holden, and now CEO of General Motors.

    Recently retired chief engineer Rick Martin reconstructed the Hurricane from archival photographs, technical drawings, and the anecdotes of many people responsible for building the car, including designer DaHarsh, who significantly modified the scale model sent from Detroit. Interior gauges, the steering wheel, the rearview camera, and even the reservoir for the oil-filled brakes were gone. Much of the car was simply recreated without adopting modern technologies, although the body was rebuilt using a more durable polyester resin, then repainted close to the original metal-flake orange.

    The original seats were strengthened and retrimmed, but most of the interior parts had to be built from scratch. Not so when the seat is lowered and the roof and steering wheel begin their slow descent. With my head pressed hard against the roof and feet squished against the pedals, my contorted left leg can just engage the clutch.

    The car moves off, slowly. Every movement is deliberate, measured. It must have given the GMH engineers a good deal of pleasure to be able to work on something purely experimental and without having to worry about costs. By exploring technologies now taken for granted, surely this car, better than most, answers the question: Why are concept cars of value to car makers? The question of who designed the Hurricane supercar has been mired in controversy.

    There could be no doubt this model was the design inspiration behind the Hurricane. Unfortunately, the designer was not identified. Close examination, however, of one small sketch with the full-size rendering revealed a near-indistinct signature. He was indeed the man responsible for the Hurricane design. Amazingly, Genest says he was never aware of the existence of the scale model, nor that Holden took it to concept car stage.

    It was my design. Yes, the model and car have all the design features of the rendering. But I never had anything to do with a Holden Hurricane. I was a kind of creativity generator in the advanced studios, and they mined my art for ideas to apply to production mostly in Chevrolet and Buick studios. I very much like the way the car turned out. It looks better than it does in my rendering. After communication with DaHarsh, Pruneau now believes it was this model that formed the basis for the Hurricane.
