Holden performed minor miracles turning the Vauxhall Viva 4 cylinder into a giant killing Bathurst winner in the GTR XU-1, ably assisted by the brilliant driving of a young Peter Brock. With the LH and LX - Holden retained the Torana name but added it to a larger, locally designed sedan and later, a hatchback. Again - it became a Bathurst winning legend with Holden’s 308 cubic inch V8. The SLR 5000 and A9X created yet another local performance legend.
During its prime Holden exported cars to Japan, South Africa, the Middle East, Indonesia, Malaysia, Fiji, New Zealand, Japan and the West Indian islands of Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad to name a few
