A sophisticated car for a truly sophisticated journey in the future

You might still remember about the GM Firebird Concept Car that we discussed a while ago. These concept cars were made by the American automotive manufacturer up to 4 series of cars, although the official Firebird Concept was made up to 3 series.

Well, the car that was originally intended as Firebird IV which was given an internal code XP-790 even had a chance to debut in 1964 the New York World's Fair as a non-functional car. The concept car was later repackaged by US automotive giants as Buick Century Cruiser and appeared on several shows in 1969.

This concept car is made to accommodate your dreams when someday in the future, you will drive on sophisticated superhighway roads with vehicles that have automatic navigation features, to travel across the country quickly but safely and comfortably, it drives automatically without having bothered driving and all only relying on your fingertips.

This experimental vehicle offers various advanced features at the time such as hands-free driving (automatic steering system), semi-reclining, swiveling contoured seats, a pull-out refrigerator, a television, and a pull-out table inside its cabin.

The concept car was able to accommodate 4 passengers with a composition of 2 + 2, with a design that is also fairly unique. The Century Cruiser's body was formed aerodynamically, flat with fin accents on both sides of the back that reflects the golden era of jets and spacecraft at that time.

As for handling matters, when Century Cruiser is driven into the superhighway road, the driver only needs to insert a card in the slot at the entrance, where the programs on Century Cruiser will take over and drive the car to the correct destination, based on information sent from the center controller. The trip can also be monitored through a navigation map, which is projected on the screen like a radar embedded in the front console.
In addition to the automatic steering system, the Century Cruiser prototype can also be operated manually via a pair of joysticks positioned on the armrests for steering and speed regulation. Canopy-shaped entrances can slide forward and upward to allow passengers in and out, and this can be operated at the touch of a button.

In our opinion, the 1969 Buick Century Cruiser concept was some kinda sophisticated car for a truly sophisticated journey that might not have been realized until now. What do you think? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSTYLING.RU | ]
