Row of unique 1990s American concept cars (Part-1)

American cars have a long and rich tradition both in the United States and around the world. This proves that it is true that the United States could be said to be the motorized vehicles paradise. Not only famous for the American muscle cars, they are also famous for the classic cars.

Not to forget from their automotive industry also produced a lot of concept cars that were made in accordance with the demands of the times and also participated to enrich the automotive world to this day.

If you ask why that was chosen in the 1990s, because in that time span many unique concept cars were born from the American automotive industry. 

Here are the first row of 8 unique concept cars made in America in the 1990s:

1. 1994 Chrysler Aviat 
Based on the Dodge/Plymouth Neon, the Aviat concept was a computer generated creation for a 21st century sports coupe with excellent coefficient of drag. Power was supplied by a DOHC 16-valve 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder that produced 145 horses, and although the engine was front-mounted, the cooling system was repositioned within the outrigger-style rear-quarter fenders.

Scissors-style doors were just one of the unconventional features of the Neon Aviat concept, billed as a sport coupe for the 21st century. The Aviat had bodywork that wrapped inside the rear wheels. Note the huge air scoop ahead of the rear wheel, and the full fender skirt. *** [Sources: http://bit.ly/2NZ5fwW]

2. 1995 Chrysler Atlantic
One of the most beautiful of recent concept cars, the Chrysler Atlantic recalled the styling of the classic Bugatti grand tourer of the same name. With its sculpted body, the Atlantic wore huge chrome wheels, and was powered by a straight-eight engine that was constructed with two Chrysler Neon fours.

In addition to its stunning and shapely design and Art Deco interior, At four liters of the Atlantic engine produced an estimated 325 horsepower delivered through an Autostick hybrid transmission that allowed assisted manual shifting or fully automatic operation. The car was shown in a deep gold paint scheme that highlighted its gorgeously sculpted body. *** [Sources: http://bit.ly/2CzPf2z]

3. 1995 Ford GT90
There were several efforts within Ford to create a successor to the GT40 that won Le Mans. One of those was the GT90, which showcased the “New Edge” design language popular within Ford’s styling studio. And then Ford made a dramatic reveal at the Detroit Auto Show. Dressed in white, the new 1995 Ford GT90 concept car. For a brief amount of time after its unveiling, the entire automotive industry was abuzz about what was then the world’s fast and most powerful car.

For the GT90’s engine was a magnificent 6.0-liter V12 that had four turbochargers attached. This put the power output of the concept car at 720 hp, which was preposterous in the 90’s and is still an accomplishment by today’s standards. Albeit, a quad-turbocharged V12 could garner more power with today’s technology. That being said, that much back in the day was enough to make the exhaust system so hot that Ford needed to install ceramic plates around it in order to prevent the body panels from melting. Just like in a space shuttle. *** [Sources: http://bit.ly/2CX1x5Q]

4. 1996 Ford Synergy
The Synergy 2010 was Ford’s idea of in 1996. As such, it featured two power sources — a 1.0-litre direct-injection extremely lightweight materials (it weighed just one tonne (ton)), "air fences", which dictated the car’s advanced, aerodynamic styling and computer-animated instruments. You could even call up the phone book by issuing a simple verbal command!

In 1996, Ford offered its thoughts on the family car of the year 2010. The federal government got the Big Three together under the banner of the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles, and part of Ford’s contribution was a lightweight and aerodynamic concept vehicle designed to get 80 mpg from its 1-liter diesel-electric hybrid powertrain. *** [Sources: http://bit.ly/2CwI6jh]
