The Holden Efijy is a concept car created in Australia by Holden. It is based around the legendary Holden FJ, the second ever model built by Holden. Since its debut showing at The Sydney International Motor Show in 2005, the Holden Efijy has been earning rave reviews, even to the extent that it was named 'Hot Rod of the Year' by a leading American hot rod magazine. It's most recent appearance was in Detroit for the motor show.
Richard Ferlazzo was he designer behind the Efijy project. He began sketching the first designs in 1989. The main reason for making this car is purely for automotive entertainment. “Invariably, people smile when they see it for the first time. Efijy is our accolade to the talented designers who cut loose with some fantastically flamboyant styling in the post-war 1940s and 1950s,” Richard Ferlazzo said. “Ask the question, ‘what would these people have created using all the skill sets and technology we have now’, and Efijy might be the all-Australian answer to that question." in relation to the original FJ designers.
The engine used is a Chevrolet 6.0 litre LS2 V8 engine that has been supercharged and modified by Ron Harrop, an ex FJ racer and well respected automotive person in Australia. The engine produces 480 kilowatts (645 bhp) and 775 newton metres (560 lb-ft) of torque through the rear wheels.
