Soletta 1956



The Soletta made its debut in 1956 at the Geneva Motor Show. The creator, the Swiss Willy Salzmann, was not so much enthousiastic about the car itself, he only wanted to exhibit his invention of the "flexible drive shaft to motor vehicles." Because he did not want his new construction in the accessories section, he built a car just around its elastic axis. The press reacted positively, but the Soletta project was not pursued. The prototype is now owned by the Swiss Car Register. It was a two-door, four-seat compact car. The vehicle had two identical doors. The driver's door was hinged on the rear-pillar and the passenger door on the front-pillar.
