Default Flashback Friday: 2000 Saturn CV1 Concept

A new image entry has been added:

Flashback Friday: 2000 Saturn CV1 Concept

Quote:
The CV1 - so named because it was Saturn's first real concept vehicle - explored new vehicle packaging and design features, many of which would end up playing an important role as Saturn grew its product lineup. Notable features found on the CV1 that eventually made it into production on other Saturn vehicles were the center-mounted instrument cluster (Ion), continuously variable transmission (Ion and Vue), flat-folding passenger seat (Vue), all-wheel-drive (Vue and Outlook), and LED tail-lights (Aura).

Everybody that saw it back them prayed that Saturn would NOT build it... You can see a few styling ques that made it to the real VUE.

Yea its freakin nasty.
You can see where the ion interior developed from though..
The doors are kinda cool.. Where the doors on the quad coupe already out? Or did they develop from this as well??
I love how all the concepts were so future-istic back then. Reminds me of the Alero concept.

Kind of reminds me of this concept by Buick:



Blech. Kind of like it, kind of hate it.

For the CV1, though, I really like the interior design.. I don't know why, but it's very cool. The rear end looks like a chopped up version of the last gen SC too.

Now to me, it looks like it has 7 doors, with 3 on each side.. That's just plain weird haha
