Is the Efijy a forerunner of things to come?
If you’ve been following my recent posts you’ll know that I’ve been going on about the possibility of the next Chevrolet Corvette being designed down under.
What reinforced my view was spotting the Holden Efijy (as in “burned in effigy”) concept car again at Holden’s HQ in Fisherman’s Bend.
Forget for a minute that it was named US Concept Car of the Year in 2007.
Disregard the retro-inspired styling and the mind-blowing Soprano Purple duco and tan leather trim. Ignore the state-of-the-art technology such as the multi-element LED headlights which are fan cooled from the back. And pay no attention to the air suspension system that sits the car down when it comes to a stop.
You could argue that the electronics including the multi-use display screen that disappears into the dash is pretty cool, as are the custom-built wheels (20-inch in the front and 22-inch at the back) which are fitted with Dunlop SP Sport tyres and monstrous road racer brakes.
But what grabs me is that this ride is based on a lengthened Corvette chassis and lowered to deliver a ride height that’s ‘just above sea level’ plus, it’s powered by a blown Corvette 6.0 litre V8 that’s linked to a Corvette rear-mounted four-speed transaxle.
Are we favourites or what!
