The Holden Efijy is a concept car created in Australia by Holden. It pays tribute to the Holden FJ, the second model built by Holden. The concept is based on the Chevrolet Corvette floor pan, a 6.0 litre V8 engine with Roots supercharger putting out 480 kW (644 hp) at a little shy of 6500 r.p.m. It rides on an air suspension system that lowers the car when the car is stopped, and also has electronic instrumentation including a multi-use display screen that disappears into the dash.

Since its debut showing at The Australian International Motor Show in 2005, the Holden Efijy has been named the United States concept car of the year for 2007.[1] Once it returned to Australia, the Efijy visited the National Motor Museum at Birdwood, South Australia, in February 2008.

The car was featured in Test Drive Unlimited as a downloadable content. The Boyd Fireflame 544 in Just Cause 2 is based on the Holden Efijy.
