Prototyp Starfire wyróżnia się zachodzącą na boki, panoramiczną szybą przednią, jednak rozwiązanie to widzieliśmy już kilka lat temu w Buicku Le Sabre.

Starfire – prototype


Oldsmobile Starfire

Oldsmbile's masterpiece, the Starfire, emphasizes the long, low look characterized by many of the recent GM prototypes. Built of Fiberglass, the special convertible Coupé utilizes a distinctive Checkerboard-type grille, intergral bumper, cut-down door-line, and bullet-like plastic shields over the headlights. Many of the Starfire's innovations, like the panoramic windshield, may eventually find their way into production. The car is powered by a 200-horsepower Oldsmbile V-8 engine.
