The[glow=red,2,300] Pontiac Club de Mer[/glow] was a purpose-built, concept car that was unveiled at the General Motors Motorama in 1956 to celebrate GM’s commitment to futuristic design. The brainchild of GM engineer-designer, Harley Earl (Paul Gillian was also involved being the Pontiac Studio head at the time), the “de Mer” was a two door sport Roadster that incorporated innovative breakthrough styling like a sleek, low-profile body encasing a large powerplant, a design trend used widely in LSR (land speed record) trials at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah during the 1950s. One Club de Mer prototype was constructed and unveiled, along with another ÃâÃÂ¼-scale model, in Miami, Florida. As per GM’s “kill order”, it was scrapped in 1958.
Only the model exists today, which was owned by Joseph Bortz of Highland Park, IL. until it was sold to noted car collector Ron Pratt at the 2007 Barrett Jackson Classic Car Auction for $75,000.
The design of the “de Mer” drew its visual impetus from contemporary aircraft construction of its day, employing a stainless steel monocoque, individual wind screens similar to those on the 1955 Lincoln Futura (later TV’s Batmobile), aerodynamically fashioned facia that flowed down from the hood skin to cover most of the grill, concealed headlights, and a single rear-deck dorsal fin. Also featured were twin “silver-streaks” that flowed into low-profile hood scoops, a carry-over from Pontiac’s Bonneville Special two years prior. The overall styling of the body was a smooth, non-undulating profile, similar to an American supersonic jet fighter, with virtually no protrusions or recesses of any kind save for the out-vents on the leading edge of both doors, and the fin. The vehicle had no bumpers, a common feature on most concepts, and the door handles were quite small. On a human scale, its most alarming feature was that it had a very low profile at just under 39 in (990.6 mm).
The interior styling in the “de Mer” had a barebones functionality to it, more in keeping with its speed trial ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬ÃâairsÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬July 31, 2012 at 6:03 pm #12501linukkisParticipantBank Notes: $ 1,735Rank:

It might sound weird but Walter Coupe is by far the best car for me. I like the fact that is slow and small and thus better in handling than other cars. Apart from that Dezilia is the boss!!July 31, 2013 at 10:09 am #15560dawgsaysftwParticipantBank Notes: $ 385Rank:
