This is a Tucker Torpedo 48. The car's destiny was to turn all other cars into obsolete junk over one night. The first car with seatbelts, doors extended to the roof for easier entering, areas where passengers could crouch before unavoidable impact, central lamp turning with front wheels, 9.7 litre (589 cui) modified helicopter engine in the rear to minimalize amount of smell and vapours from engine in the interior, safety glass which breakes into small pieces, new rubber discs suspension, safety roof frame and INSANE aerodynamics. All of these in 1948!!! Sad, but problems with all the new parts led to engine swap for Chevy 8-valve and Tuckermatic transmission for Cord. Tucker was charged from misappropriation by the investors and even he wasn't found guilty, Tucker's name was damaged. The dream was broken and production ended with 37 completed cars plus another 14 were later built from free parts. 47 survived and when auctioned, they can easily reach 1 million USD.
This one is dedicated to all who tried to bring their dreams in reality, even it failed.
