Holden’s Time Attack Concept is a 1,340-horsepower EV hypercar

Almost exactly one year ago, Holden of Australia shut down its final assembly plant. Although they no longer build new cars, the brand continues to imagine what the future of the automobile might look like.

The Time Attack Concept celebrates the 50th anniversary of Holden’s first Bathurst victory in very big ways. While this is but a rendering, its potential is very real.

Using four inboard permanent magnet motors, referred to as a “Reconfigurable Graphene Hybrid Power Pack”, the Time Attack Concept is endowed with 1,341-horsepower and 2,389 lb.- ft. of torque.

This kind of power is enough to launch the Time Attack Concept 100km/h in a scant 1.25 seconds. The rated top speed is roughly 475 km/h. In these same simulations, the Concept is capable of pulling 6.5 Gs or essentially what a modern F1 car can.

Physically, the car is a cross between an LM Prototype and a land-speed record car. The Time Attack features carbon Kevlar composite panels but there’s no word on its weight.
