THE HOLDEN BATHURST TIME ATTACK CONCEPT EV IN THE NEWS
Week 40 2018 - Holden showcase a virtual EV concept
A design and engineering teams of the Australian automobile import brand Holden unveiled a virtual concept electric hypercar this week on the 50th anniversary of Holden’s first win at the Bathurst. Holden, a GM company, does not manufacture vehicles anymore and therefore does not take part at Motors Shows decided to use virtual development to showcase its prowess.
Holdens design chief, Richard Ferlazzo said “The cessation of Motor Shows in Australia left a hole in our automotive culture in some ways and we lost a forum to showcase our passion and creativity to the Australian public with physical concept cars. However, with the realism and detail achievable through modern technology, I felt we could still deliver uniquely Holden concepts via virtual technology and digital media.”
The Holden Bathurst Time Attack hyper EV with its 25kWh Graphene Hybrid Power Pack and 4 x 250kW electric motors completed a simulated lap of Mount Panorama in 1 minute 29.3 seconds. The reconfigurable battery pack can be charged in 90 seconds with a 1000kW, 800V, 1250A charging system. The Bathurst Time Attack produces a max lateral G-force of 6.5G and max braking G-force of 6G. The hypercar is equipped with an Advanced Driving Assist System through an augmented reality helmet, showing essential technical information and racing line and braking zone benchmarks in 3-D.
On Holden’s strategy, Mr. Ferlazze added “Automotive Design and Engineering remains a core strength and competitive advantage for Holden and for Australia. The Time Attack Concept racer is an illustration of how we can utilise cutting-edge technology to develop transportation solutions for the future. You can see from the extremely detailed approach to incorporating the advanced technology in our Time Attack Concept racer that this is more than just a visual exercise. Holden’s recent announcement of the expansion of 150 new engineers to our Advanced Vehicle Development team means we have the talent, resources and technology to continue delivering to that charter.”
