1985 Cadillac Cimarron Concept Car

1985 Cadillac Cimarron “There’s not much good to be said of the production Cadillac Cimarron. Meant to be smaller and sportier than the rest of the land yacht line-up to compete against European sedans, it was built on GM’s FWD J-Platform (same as the Chevy Cavalier.) It was despised by the typical Cadillac buyer so much that the Cimarron was not even included in most of Cadillac’s line-up sales brochures until near the end of its lifespan when it was finally given a 130 HP V6 engine instead of the 88 HP Inline 4. By then it was too late and the Cadillac name had been tarnished. The Cimarron nameplate was done. Cadillac didn’t attempt another smaller, sporty sedan in the US for another decade when it released the Catera. This concept was built on the J-platform, making it FWD and powered by a multi-port fuel-injected 2.8L V6. That’s about where the similarities to a production Cimarron ended. That 2.8 sat under a one-piece clamshell hood. The body was completely custom, featuring a second cowl and windshield between the front and rear passenger compartments, a design tribute to the 1931 Cadillac Fleetwood Dual Cowl Phaeton. The suspension used Delco Bilstein struts all around and rolled on custom 2-piece Alcoa wheels wrapped in 255/50VR16 Goodyear Eagle tires. The interior featured two integrated TV’s for the front and rear passengers. There was a car phone with the microphone integrated into the steering wheel, to allow hands-free use while driving.” Visit: www.story-cars.com #storycars #cadillac #cimarron #1985 #conceptcars #conceptcar #classiccars #classiccar #rarecar #rarecars #carvideo #carvideos ▪️Send an email for credit or removal requests (no copyright intended).

1959 Brook Stevens Scimitar

1959 Brook Stevens Scimitar “Famed auto designer Brooks Stevens created three Scimitar models for display at the 1959 Geneva Auto. The other two models were a Hard-Top Convertible and a Town Car Phaeton. All three cars were built on a 1959 Chrysler New Yorker Chassis. The cars received great attention and acclaim. The cars were financed by Olin Aluminum and extensive use of the lightweight metal was used to construct the car. The silver-appearing areas are anodized, brushed aluminum. The car’s name is derived from the Scimitar shape, clearly evident in the upward sweep from the lower front fender to the top of the rear fender. The cars were never produced or offered for sale. This car is on display at the National Automobile Museum in Reno, NV. Scimitar Town Car Phaeton — Named for the scimitar-like shape of its pride, this is one of three Scimitar vehicles designed by Brooks Stevens for the 1959 Geneva auto show (the others were a station wagon and a two-door with a tractable hardtop). The aluminum bodywork (placed over a 1959 Chrysler New Yorker chassis by Reuter) was commissioned by Olin Aluminum Corp. to show the benefits of its metal. The roof over the passenger compartment could be lowered into the trunk to create a four-door convertible.” Visit: www.story-cars.com #storycars #scimitar #1959 #brookstevens #conceptcars #conceptcar #classiccars #classiccar #rarecar #rarecars #carvideo #carvideos ▪️Send an email for credit or removal requests (no copyright intended).

Moller M200G Volantor by Paul Moller

1980’s Moller M200G “Though the M200G and its variants have been under development since the 1980s, Moller claims it's still working on verification and approval from the appropriate regulatory agencies before production (and hence, sales to the public) can begin. The M200G Volantor is a prototype of a flying saucer-style hovercraft, designed by aeronautics engineer Paul Moller. The vehicle is envisioned as a precursor to the Moller M400 Skycar. The M200G Volantor uses a system of eight computer-controlled fans to hover up to 10 feet (3 m) above the ground. Volantor is a term coined by Moller meaning "a vertical takeoff and landing aircraft." The M200G Neuera is a circular craft with seats in the middle for two passengers and a control panel. The vehicle is 3 feet (0.9 meters) tall and 10 feet (3 meters) in diameter. Eight Wankel rotary engines power eight enclosed fans. The fans allow for vertical take-off and landing and, once the vehicle is aloft, rely upon the ground effect to create a cushion of air that the vehicle sits upon while flying. The eight separate engines exist for redundancy, allowing the craft to continue flying if one engine goes out. If two engines go out, the craft will make a survivable hard landing. The engines can be powered with gasoline, diesel, or ethanol fuels.” Visit: www.story-cars.com #storycars #mollerm200g #ufo #skycar #moller #conceptcars #conceptcar #classiccars #classiccar #rarecar #rarecars ▪️Send an email for credit or removal requests (no copyright intended).
