1958 GM Firebird III by Norev

1958 General Motors Firebird III by Norev. 

The Firebird III was built in 1958 and showed
for the first time in public at the 1959 Motorama.

This titanium coupé is propelled by a 225 hp gas turbine
and a 10 hp gasoline engine, for doing small manoeuvre.
It presents technical advances such as regulator speed,
anti-lock brakes and air conditioning.
The steering is controlled by a joystick located between the seats.
It even has an automatic guidance system for prevent accidents...

From all evidence, drive this car was like flying in a jet!

The original Concept Car.
