The Chrysler D’Elegance is a concept car built by Ghia. Introduced in 1952, the Chrysler D’Elegance is a style study provided by Virgil Exner and the fourth concept between Chrysler and Ghia. The D’Elegance is a sporty coupe. Inspired by the Facel Vega, it adopts a European style, with rounded lines and white wall tires. Some elements, however, are reminiscent of the American style, such as the mesh grill. His lines will give life 3 years later to the Forward Look, sought after by Virgil Exner. The Chrysler D’Elegance is based on the chassis of a Chrysler New Yorker, with a 5.8-liter 280PS Hemi V8 engine paired with a PowerFlite automatic transmission.
