1934 De Soto Airflow Series SE

The 1934 De Soto Airflow Series SE was an innovative car model that was introduced in 1933 by De Soto. It was the first American car that was designed using the principles of fluid dynamics, and it had a streamlined body that was both aerodynamic and stylish.

The car was powered by a six-cylinder engine that produced 100 horsepower, and it was the first car to have a center-mounted rearview mirror. The car also had features such as hydraulic brakes and independent suspension, which made it an advanced car for its time.

Although the De Soto Airflow was innovative, it did not sell well due to its unconventional design and high price. The public was not ready for a car that looked so modern, and the Great Depression also made it difficult for people to afford a new car.

The De Soto Airflow Series SE was produced only for a few years, and it was eventually replaced by more traditional car designs by De Soto. However, its impact on the automotive industry was significant as it paved the way for later car models that were designed using aerodynamics.
