Ford – Avant Garde

.


Vehicle Overview

Based on the American Ford Escort, the Avant Garde was built to study aerodynamics and drag coefficency. The underbody was smooth, the windshield slanted 67 degrees, and twin engine cooling ducts were placed between the front bumper and hood, while the headlights and front signal indicators were partially covered by electronically-operated flaps. The rear window, equipped with an aerofoil, could be opened. The interior was lined in hand-finished leather and suede. The electronic instruments were recessed to avoid reflections while the controls for the signal indicators, horn, and wipers were situated directly behind the steering wheel. For increased interior security, the radio could be removed, and a carpet blind could be drawn over the interior. The door panels featured removable suede shoulder compartments built into the armrests.
