Homologation specials are a rare breed. Their race-bred features are available right out of the box, making homologated road cars both valuable and timeless. In the case of the Torana A9X, you also get a look that can turn the average driver into a bad boy with the turn of the key. Australians have known the Torana through many iterations. Holden built the cars – which were never largely exported – endearing the Torana to Aussie enthusiasts. V8 Supercar fans flock to the Torana not only for its bulging lines and fat tires, but for a race history that is the stuff of legend. Peter Brock drove Toranas to victory in Australian Touring Car, including wins at the Bathurst 1000, Australia’s “Great Race.” In 1979, Brock won the Bathurst 1000 by an astounding six laps, setting a lap record in the process. You don’t have to be a subject of the crown to appreciate this little V8-powered mighty-mite, however; it will earn your loyalty with just a few turns around Mount Panorama… or any other track.
