Holden Efijy Concept Car
My good buddy and auto enthusiast @mcpeak sent me a link to this article on autoblog.com featuring this masterpiece. Holden, GM’s Australian subsidiary, debuted the Efigy in 2005, but Chief Designer Richard Ferlazzo first sketched the car back in 1989. Ferlazzo’s aim was to combine the raw might and appeal of glory days hot rods with the technology available today. Proximity sensors open the doors as you approach. In addition to a push-button transmission, there’s a drop-down touchscreen LCD that controls the air suspension, sat-nav, radio, and other functions. The retro stereo graphic that appears onscreen controls a 2000-watt system with a hard drive for audio and video. The instrument cluster is electronic. The floor is hardwood: maple timber veneer with aluminum bands. Dual filament LED’s inside can provide different colored mood lighting. LED’s do illumination duty outside front and rear, with the LED headlamps cooled by fans. This is one sweet ride.
