Watch Holden’s radical time attack concept racer log a virtual 1:29s lap of Mount Panorama.

GM Holden has designed a radical time attack concept race car to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the marque’s first Bathurst win in 1968.

The company has focussed the design around achieving pure one lap pace with the company claiming the concept could theoretically lap Mount Panorama in 1:29.30s, more than 30 seconds faster than the current outright lap record, and reach speeds of 480km/h.

The entirely carbon fibre chassis is powered by four 254kW electric motors which could produce 1340 horsepower.
