1987 Chevrolet Express

More than just another aerodynamic concept vehicle, the Chevrolet Express, initially shown in 1987, was the latest iteration of General Motors' long-running experimentation with the gas turbine. Powered by a mid-mounted GM AGT-5 turbine, the Express was designed to be capable of running at a constant 150 miles per hour. It was not a toy for the hot rodder. It was part of a system of federal limited access highways where high-speed travel was the norm.


The four-passenger, the two-door car, was accessed with a hatch raising the roof. The coefficient of drag was terrific at .195. Ground effects built into the carbon-fiber body-covered wheels and engine location were part of the speed package. Electronic gadgetry abounded, including drive-by-wire controls, instrumentation, and three dash-mounted screens and cameras replacing mirrors.


The car is also seen in Back to the Future Part II upon Marty's arrival in the year 2015.
