Holden revived a famous Australian nameplate when it took the covers off a sensational showcar called Torana TT36 at the Australian International Motor Show in 2004.

Holden drew on General Motors global resources to build the hot pink Torana TT36, which is powered by an experimental 280kW twin turbo 3.6 litre Alloytec V6 engine, sports a glass roof and showcases bold directional design themes.

Not for production, this mid-sized hatch concept demonstrates the strength and versatility of Holdens design talent to a worldwide audience and emphasises its ability to react swiftly to changing customer demand.

Torana TT36 highlights Holdens rear wheel drive powertrain engineering expertise and the practical benefits to be gained by sharing GM global suspension and chassis components and modular structural systems.

The new millennium hot hatch pays homage to Holdens Bathurst-winning icon car of the seventies, the Torana A9X. It is 25 years since the revered V8-powered Torana A9X last conquered Mount Panorama and wrote itself into Australian automotive legend.

Holden Chairman and Managing Director, Denny Mooney, said he believed the Toranas spiritual successor showed how times continued to change in the automotive industry.

Torana TT36 represents a revolution in concept car design at Holden. Weve unveiled several examples of our design flexibility and build capability in recent years but this car is exceptional for yet another reason, Mr Mooney said.

All recent showcars have been based on our Commodore V-car platform. Torana TT36, on the other hand, shares many basic structural elements with the latest GM sports concepts and much of its chassis componentry is sourced directly from GM.

It is the first Holden showcar to merge Australian design and engineering expertise with GM technical resources. Quite simply, for us it is a game changer in automotive design and production.

Naming the concept car was easy. We knew many fans would immediately call it Torana because it is a high powered, mid-size, rear wheel drive hot hatch. The TT36 stands for Twin Turbo 3.6.

The twenty-first century Torana has slingshot performance potential. Its experimental 3.6 litre twin turbo Alloytec V6, hand-built at Holdens new Port Melbourne engine plant, produces 280kW of power, transferred to the tarmac via a heavy-duty six speed manual transmission.

Ninety per cent of the 480Nm of torque developed is available from just 1600 rpm and the TT36 shares the power-to-weight advantage that helped its A9X sporting predecessor to drive into the record books at Mt Panorama a quarter of a century ago.

The four-seater showcar is finished in luminous, look-at-me pink - dubbed ManGenta by the trend-spotting stylists who created it - contrasted against a slick new-tech interior in minimalist black and white. A panoramic glass roof extends from the steeply raked windscreen all the way back to the hatch and the TT36 sits on 20-inch, ten-spoke alloys.

The project was originally named XP54, reflecting the acronym eXperimental Project and coded 54 in recognition of Holdens so-called Studio 54 design workshop in the outer suburbs of Melbourne.

Holden Design Director, Tony Stolfo, said the showcars aggressive, sports-oriented frontal treatment recalled its hard-charging Torana heritage while speaking the design language of the here and now.

Its very performance-driven in terms of the size of the apertures, the air intakes and grille. The fenders and quarter panels are pumped to accentuate width and stance, he said. It also displays some of the key proportions well see in future cars generally: front wheels forward, minimal overhang, high belt lines and a high deck. All these elements create strength and purpose and deliver expressive contemporary styling. The hatch style gives us a very fast line running over the top, and weve given it strong directional lines. In terms of overall design intent, its far more sophisticated sports machine than street machine. And because its a vehicle which delivers a really large interior compartment in relation to its exterior size, it shows off our packaging skills, which are a traditional Holden strength.

The Torana TT36 interior is an exercise in black and white contemporary cool, described by Holdens young colour and trim team as nu luxury. Taking inspiration from forecast fashion trends in domestic and industrial design, they gave it smoothly sculptured white leather seats and mirror-gloss finishes in piano black and pearlescent perspex, contrasted with soft-feel textures and black techno-mesh rubber floor covering.

The pink exterior theme is picked up in clever LED lighting effects and a retro future 3D instrument layout that can be customised to the drivers taste. Open the door and a full- length lighting strip integrated into the glass roof radiates a healthy pink glow. Press the backlit central starter button to play twin turbo engine idle music. Touch the interactive infotainment screen to control myriad functions phone, CD, SatNav, DVD, address book and other Blue Tooth-compatible features.

The Torana TT36 may be simply for show but its not about outrageous technology. We consider that something very close to this concept could be practically achievable in the not-too-distant future, Mr Stolfo said.

Its a first step towards monitoring public reaction to a type of rear-wheel drive vehicle that doesnt exist in todays General Motors portfolio. It could be designed and produced off a number of GM platforms, taking advantage of the virtual maths-based processes and component sharing which enabled us to build this working concept in a very short space of time.
