Dieselstation Car Forums _ Frozen _ Holden Efijy

Posted by: Mitlov Sep 8 2007, 09:37 PM

It looks old-school American, but it's actually Australian. Powered by a supercharged 6.0L LS2 V8 from Holden's GM parent, this car makes 645 hp and 560 ft-lbs. Like any self-respecting hot rod, it's rear-wheel-drive.

Is it cool?

frozen solid.

For me, it's frozen as frozen can be. Whether you're a hot rod guy or not, it's hard for me to imagine not being impressed by this.

Posted by: WardLarson Sep 8 2007, 11:38 PM

yeah really, it's just gorgeous, not to mention a beast, and a great interior.

About as cold as they come...Frozen.

Cool but it is a good thing that it didn't hit production or it would end up like the Plymouth Prowler.

I know what a Plymouth Prowler is, but I didn't follow cars when it was released so I'm not sure what you mean by this. Care to elaborate?

If that's not frozen I don't know what is (This is NOT coming from a holden fan)

It looks like the car from Batman comics or something ! Absolutely gorgeous

Frozen, this thing was on the cover of Hot Rod magazine (I think) a few years ago. They were drooling over the thing.

I'm not sure if I've ever seen a car get a more overwhelming vote for frozen.

GM should have built this thing, and made it just like the concept (or as close as government lighting/bumper/etc regulations allow). There are plenty of upper-middle-class middle-aged guys out there who would gladly drop $50-60k for this car, even if it's handling isn't the best and the fuel economy is poor and there's no manual transmission and yadda yadda yadda.

Seen it in person - spent about 10 minutes just pouring over every little detail of the damn thing. It's far and away frozen and anyone who says differently is fucked in the head.

I would have liked it a lot more if they put a blown LS6 with a stick in it.

Well the later models got the LS2 with a 6-speed, which was a big step up from the 5.3 with the 4-speed auto that it originally came with. But even with that superior powertrain, it was still a very flawed car dynamically and it looks pretty stupid...

Basically, when the Prowler was released as a concept car then it got rave reviews and was generally loved...however, when it hit production then it was seen as a hot rod for posers and on top of it the styling didn't age nearly as well as actual hot rods do. People always want a cool concept car to make it to production but sometimes it isn't a good idea...

worse yet... it was WAY underpowered... which is why it is a poser hot rod.

BTW, the Efijy... it froze hell...

Posted by: pakula Sep 19 2007, 03:16 PM

...though its price tag would likely be $1,000,000 or more, which is what it cost to actually build the concept.

I'll wait to see one at the dream cruise next year.

Posted by: WardLarson Oct 2 2007, 07:44 PM

mod/admin should move this to frozen sometime.
