Description

Motor Car: Chrysler Turbine Car: The gas-turbine-engined car - the Turboflite - produced by the Chrysler Corporation was shown to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers in Washington. The car is powered by a regenerative gas turbine engine which solves the problems of acceleration and engine breaking. At the rear of tthe car is an air-flap suspended between two struts. This flap pivots up into the airstream when the breaks are applied, creating a drag and helping to slow down the car. The weight of the engine is half that of the conventional Chrysler V-8 power unit. The entire glass canopy off the Turboflite raises when the door is opened.
