The GP700 car from the Goliath factory was the first ‘ponton’ designed car to be made.
* ponton – also called pontoon, is a type of styling that was seen in some cars during the 60’s when the trend emerged. What it essentially means is that the bodywork begins to enclose the full width and uninterrupted length of a car, incorporating distinct running boards and articulated fenders.
The GP700 design was way beyond what Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz or Opel had to offer during this time. While they were still producing cars that had design element from the 1930’s, Goliath introduced the 'Ponton' in 1952. The wings were fully integrated into the bodywork, and the passenger cabin filled the full width of the car.
Even the layout of her front mounted engine was followed by other makers much later – it was installed transversely along with the gear-box. With a 2 cylinder, 2-stroke, 668cc engine, the GP700 could run up to 100 km/hr.
