Ford Seattle XXI
They were even thinking about a car with the option of different powertrains. The built concept had 6 wheels with a 400bhp motor, but this could be removed by changing the whole front of the car to a smaller 2 wheeled version with a 60bhp engine, the reason? One for long haul driving, the other for the inner city, where power isn’t needed but ease of driving and parking is.
I think you’ll agree that’s not bad for 50 years ago, most of if not all of the ideas are in your modern motor and we don’t even give them a second thought. The changing of the whole front of the car is the only outdated part, as these days 2 car ownership isn’t unusual in a household.
