1. Le Dymaxion est un concept-car sur 3 roues crée par l’architecte Buckminster Fuller dans les années 30. Il exprimait, selon lui, ce que devait être la voiture du futur. L’ancêtre du Combi VW diront certains.

    Ce drôle d’engin pouvait transporter jusqu’à 11 personnes, et son créateur prétendait qu’il pouvait atteindre la vitesse surprenante (pour l’époque) de 190 Km/h. Cette vitesse ne sera jamais vérifiée.

    En 1933, lors de la Chicago’s World Fair, le premier prototype part en tonneau pour une raison inconnue. Le pilote est tué. Cet événement tragique sonnera le glas de ce projet fou, les investisseurs ne voulant plus suivre après l’accident.

    Des 3 véhicules produits à l’époque, il n’en reste qu’un, exposé au National Automobile Museum de Reno, dans le Nevada.
