Rust Heinz (of HEINZ Ketchup fame) and his partner Maurice Schwartz a coachbuilder, teamed up to built this monstrous prototype Phantom Corsair, in 1938 that costs Rs. 16 lakh (todays equivalent of Rs. 2.6 crore).
Even though it had an aluminium body, the car weighed over 2 tons and yet did 200 km/hr. The dashboard consisted of a compass, altimeter and also open door warning lights. The car was mated with the most advanced chassis available during that time (Cord 810) though after few modifications as the car body was 20 feet long. It had doors that didnt have handles but that operated electronically with push buttons placed outside. The car weighed over 2 tons and did nearly 200 km/hr.
The most unique part was that it could seat 2 passengers at the rear and 4 in the front (including one that was seated on the left of the driver).
Unfortunately the car could not be produced as Rust Heinz dies in an accident in 1939.
