Chrysler – TurboFlite

.


Vehicle Overview

Released in 1961, and on display during the 1962 Chicago auto show, the TurboFlite concept was Virgil Exner’s last show car for Chrysler. As the name implies the car was powered by a third generation turbine engine. The entire canopy would lift up/down in sync with the doors opening/closing, and the headlights were retractable. A unique deceleration flap was mounted horizontally between the soaring tailfins. This was another collaborate effort between Ghia of Italy and Chrysler’s engineers.
