1956 Pontiac Club de Mer

This beauty was created for the General Motors Motorama in 1956, and sadly, never saw the light of day as a production car.

We thinks it’s one of the sexiest concept cars of the era, a low-slung, small roadster, with dual bubble windshields, and a bright red interior.

Dramatic chrome strips run the length of the hood and reach over the front of the hidden headlights.  In the rear, a giant single tailfin erupts out of the trunk like a shark fin.

Sadly, GM decided to scrap plans for this stunning little car, and only a single model of it exists today.
