The Chrysler Airflow is a full-size car produced by Chrysler from 1934 to 1937. The Airflow was one of the first full-size American production car to use streamlining as a basis for building a sleeker automobile, one less susceptible to air resistance. Chrysler made a significant effort at a fundamental change in automotive design with the Chrysler Airflow, but it was ultimately a commercial failure. Chrysler also marketed a companion model under the DeSoto brand, the DeSoto Airflow.

  • Der Chrysler Airflow war ein PKW, den Chrysler von 1934 bis 1937 herstellte. Der Airflow war der erste große US-amerikanische Serienwagen, der die Stromlinienform als Basis für ein glatteres Automobil nutzte, eines, das dem Wind weniger Widerstand entgegensetzte. Chrysler machte mit dem Airflow den ersten Versuch einer grundsätzlichen Designänderung, aber dieser erwies sich letztendlich als einer der größten Misserfolge in der Automobilgeschichte.

  • Walter Percy Chrysler apparteneva a quella categoria di uomini che rendevano l'espressione "self-made-man" molto più che un luogo comune fra gli Statunitensi. Il figlio di un'umile coppia di allevatori non avrebbe mai potuto immaginare che l'ingegno e il proprio lavoro lo avrebbero portato ad accumulare uno dei patrimoni più ingenti di tutti gli Stati Uniti. Dopo aver risanato case automobilistiche come la Willys-Overland e la Maxwell, nel 1924 creò il proprio marchio di automobili: la Chrysler Corporation. Gli ingegneri Fred Zeder, Carl Breer e Owen Skelton, tutti provenienti dalla Maxwell, furono incaricati di tracciare le linee guida delle Chrysler per più di vent'anni. E fu proprio uno di loro, Carl Breer, a convincere Chrysler che costruire un'auto molto aerodinamica poteva portare gr
  • La Chrysler Airflow est la première automobile des années 1930 à s'intéresser de près à l'aérodynamique et à l'offrir de série, d'où le nom qui signifie flux d'air. Elle est ainsi l'emblème le plus expressif du courant Streamline Moderne, cette tendance aux États-Unis à dessiner des lignes courbes et très fluides. Néanmoins, ce courant moderne appliqué sur une automobile de série se révèle trop innovant pour susciter, outre un succès d'estime, un succès commercial.
  • Chrysler Airflow − model samochodu osobowego produkowanego przez firmę Chrysler w latach 1934-1937. Był to pierwszy samochód, który zaprojektowano zgodnie z nową tendencją w USA (Streamline Moderne), z użyciem linii zaokrąglonych i płynnych, z zabudowanymi światłami i błotnikami (tak, by w połączeniu z maską tworzyły wspólną bryłę). Innowacyjne podejście okazało się zbyt nowatorskie jak na gusta nabywców w latach 30.; model Airflow nie odniósł sukcesu komercyjnego (wyprodukowano 29 878 egzemplarzy).
