The 1957 Chrysler Dart Concept
The 1957 Chrysler Dart Concept was a vehicle constructed to defy wind. It was very aerodynamic tested in one of Europe’s largest wind tunnels. At the time of its construction, it was the most aerodynamic car in existence. It had less than one-third the air resistance of any other passenger car on the road. Virgil Exner’s designed the car at his studio at Chrysler.
The bumper was a wrap-around rubber mounted unit that provided protection while maintaining the vehicle’s design. The vehicle was designed with a sliding roof, which could be removed and hidden in a compartment behind the rear seat. A potion of the roof could also be retracted, leaving the rear seat primarily closed, but leaving the front seat open.
