Phantom Corsair (1938)
A mad looking concept, which featured many design details that you’d never link to a concept from the 30’s. To start with, the animal-like personality given to the front.
The whole streamlined design (of which Bohman & Schwartz were in charge) was so ahead of its time, already thinking about keeping things clean & simple. No hard edges whatsoever and plenty of personality make the Phantom Corsair one of the most interesting concept cars in history.
Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux Coupe (1938)
New York, 1951.
Delahaye Type 165 Cabriolet (1939)
Now I see what asaucerfulofwheels meant, concerning his recent fascination with the Figoni & Falaschi coachworking.
I had always connected Delahayes to the Pennock of The Hague coach firm, but apparently the most interesting designs came directly from Figoni & Falaschi themselves, one of the most flamboyant coach builders car history has ever known.
