Concept cars: 1951 General Motors LeSabre Concept

By  | 


The design of the 1951 General Motors LeSabre came from GM head designer Harley Earl. The inspiration for the design came from jet fighters and a futuristic design for the times. Billed as a rolling engineering laboratory, the car had many innovations that we used on future GM lines.

The car was reported to have cost between $500,000 – $1,000,000 as a major icon for GM the rest of the 50’s.
The name was born out of the Air Force Sabre jet fighters of the day, with Buick taking the name for one of their vehicles later on.
The body was a mix of aluminium, magnesium, fibreglass with a 215CI. supercharged V8 engine and a Buick Dynaflow automatic transmission.
The concept car featured many futuristic design elements, including a full 12 V electrical system, heated seats, power top and electric lifting jacks.
