Rover was doing it even earlier, but---but---but--- well, let's be charitable and say the Chrysler was better looking.:alien2:

Rover and Chrysler were experimenting with turbines at about the same time. The first Chrysler turbine powered car was in 1952. The last one, to my knowledge was 1978.

Actually, there are still 9 of the cars left, and bout 4 of them still run. The horsepower was rated at 130 bhp @ 3600 rpm, and torque was 425 lb-ft. They also were able to turn about 45,000 rpms. As for top speed, i'm not really sure. You can get a lot of information on this car at http://www.turbinecar.com/turbine.htm Hope this helps, le me know if you have any other questions about this car.
