1992 Chrysler Cirrus

Presented at the 1992 Detroit Auto Show, the Chrysler Cirrus concept car is another example of the company's leading-edge efforts in a cab-forward design and two-stroke engine technology. Cirrus begins the thesis for a next-generation compact sedan. It is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged Fury V6 engine that, when running on fuel grade alcohol it would produce 400 bhp at 6,000 rpm.


The Chrysler Cirrus concept car is missing something—a pillar between the front and rear door. The lack of a "B pillar" makes it easier for passengers to enter and exit the vehicle. Its performance-oriented interior, with bucket seats for each passenger, matches its aggressive exterior, which has a steeply raked windshield and a low, wide stance.
