This 1957 Chrysler Dart Concept was a vehicle constructed to be totally wind resistance. It was very aerodynamic and finely tuned in one of Europe’s largest wind tunnels. Later it was renamed the Dart Diablo.
At the time of its construction, it was the most aerodynamic car in existence. It had less than 1/3 the air drag compared to other passenger cars on the road. The design of the vehicle was from Virgil Exner’s design studio at Chrysler.
The bumper was a wrap-around rubber structure that provided protection while still preserving the vehicles design and aerodynamic principles. There was a sliding roof panel which could be removed and hidden in a special compartment behind the rear seat. Part of the roof could also be retracted, which would leave the rear seat mostly closed, but the front seat open.
