    The Chrysler Atlantic take its name, and much of its inspiration, from the Bugatti Atlantic coupes of the s. Power comes a 4 liter, valve.

    The concept car concept is translated as "the idea of a car". This is a kind of prototype car, which tests people's reactions to new technologies being introduced, design solutions, etc. In its original form, prototypes are never launched into mass production.

    Good story, but they were judges in and the car was started in The lead designer was Bob Hubbach, and the car was called the Chrysler Atlantic though some reports have the French spelling. The car is The interior is pedestrian, not full-on retro.

    Ironically a Chrysler show car done near the same time, the Chronos, has the interior the Atlantique should have had—lots of wood and leather. Now where I think they took a road that should not have been taken was wasting time and money to make a straight 8 engine. Maybe Lutz wanted to show Chrysler could do anything so he ordered Engineering to take two 2. Output was something like hp. I would have preferred a Chrysler V8, something with, say hp and then this car would have been more a prototype for something that could be built.

    No other American automaker has a full on retro car; Chrysler could have had something really special for a few years until the competitors fielded something similar. And if they had it would have been a renaissance in car design all of us Euro fans could enjoy. And the taillights are too modern, spoiling the vintage mood.

    Still the Atlantique is an interesting design exercise, and one wishes there were more gearheads in command in American automaking ranks that could create more dream cars that reach into the past for the elegance that has been lost…. The Atlantic is a part of the Walter P. When the Museum opened in October it had a spot reserved for it. Lutz is retired from Chrysler now but he can look back on it and consider it one of his finest moments….

    Nice article on a very beautiful retro design. I saw the car in Chicago where it was on display at a National Association meeting, along with other current Chrysler production cars. The Atlantic had a very magnetic quality, drawing everyone to it, even those who were not car guys. One of those surprisingly good and truly unforgettable designs. What do you think? The Cadillac 16 and a later 4 door convertible are illegitimate as well. People will have to purchase from OVERseas. Thank You Very Much.

    Something like that four door Cadillac convertible. What are we chopped liver? Anyway I think the flaw is no auto executive wants to stick his neck out and champion an ultimate luxury vehicle made in America for fear it will be a flop and his career will sink with it. Guys like Lutz, who could land a fighter plane wheels up well, come to think of it, I think that was unplanned are what we need, guys with G-U-T-S. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
