Ford Quicksilver

The Ford Quicksilver concept car by Ghia.

Vehicle Overview

The Ford Quicksilver concept car by Ghia, akin to the Ghia AC of 1981, was a vehicle crafted on the AC ME 3000 chassis, which had been extended by eleven inches. This expansion allowed the car to comfortably accommodate up to five passengers within its 116-inch wheelbase. Unveiled to the public at the 1982 Turin Auto Show, the Quicksilver showcased a blend of innovative design and forward-thinking features. Underneath its striking exterior, it was equipped with Ford’s robust 3-liter V6 engine, coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission. This powertrain configuration promised both performance and efficiency, fitting for a concept car designed to capture the imagination of automotive enthusiasts and industry insiders alike. One of the notable design elements of the Quicksilver was its emphasis on modern aesthetics and functionality. Initially presented in a metallic silver finish, the car later underwent a transformation, sporting a sleek dark black exterior. This color change highlighted its evolution in style and presentation over time. The interior of the Quicksilver was equally impressive, featuring a futuristic dashboard adorned with analog gauges arranged in distinct “segments”. This design approach not only enhanced the visual appeal of the cabin but also contributed to a cohesive and modern cockpit experience for the driver and passengers. In terms of technological innovation, the Quicksilver boasted flush-mounted glass and retractable headlights, which underscored its commitment to aerodynamics and contemporary automotive design principles. These features not only contributed to the car’s sleek profile but also showcased Ghia’s mastery in integrating functionality with aesthetic appeal. As a concept car developed for Lincoln, the Ford Quicksilver represented a bold exploration of automotive design and engineering. Its debut at the Turin Auto Show marked a significant moment in automotive history, illustrating Ford’s commitment to pushing boundaries and exploring new possibilities in the realm of luxury and performance vehicles.
