Odd and Interesting Vehicles: 1953 General Motors Firebird 1 XP-21 | MotorBuzz

The 1953 XP-21 Firebird 1 is remarkable, and very easily differentiated, from just about anything else designed for the road. The looks of 1953 XP-21 Firebird 1 is very similar to a jet airplane, as its styling was more a nod to inspiration rather than to practical engineering design principles. The 1953 XP-21 Firebird 1 is still a car after all, as this design produced over 370 hp, at a turbine speed of 13,000 rpm, while expelling its jet fuel at a comically impractical 1,250 degrees Fahrenheit.
