The Chrysler Turbine has long been regarded as a bold but misguided chapter in automotive history. Today, the lessons learned on this project are playing a major role in the quest to create an environmentally "clean" car for the 21st century. Ironically, it was emissions problems that ultimately did in Chrylser's original turbine car. While test drivers felt the car had potential, engineers could not make the engine run cleanly enough. Trace the two-decade struggle to do away with the piston engine from the first proposal to the 50 sleek, Ghia-bodied test cars. See rare footage of their development and testing, and hear incredible stories from the engineers who worked on the project. In one case, the turbine's ability to run on any combustible liquid was tested by filling the tank of one car with Tequila and another with perfume. Both drivers got in and drove away! It's a remarkable look at a revolutionary vehicle that may yet write a new chapter in automotive history.
