Concepts and prototypes : Chrysler C Car

The Chrysler 180 was a bitter-sweet story for Chrysler Europe, and although the original British style was pleasant enough, there was a degree of internal controversy about it.

  1. Chris Sawyer says:

    It is amazing how much the coupe looks like the 3-door Chevrolet Vega.

  2. Graham says:

    I guess the coupe was seen as a replacement for the rapier.

  3. Bernard Taylor says:

    There are hints of the Tagora front in the lower facelift model, I’d say.

Have your say...
