The '51 Le Sabre Concept is based upon the real Le Sabre concept car, designed by Harley J. Earl and built by GM in 1951. It was featured in car shows around the world and sports the "jet airplane" look that was so prevalent in the 1950's. The car was powered by a 215 c.i. V-8 engine (≈ 3.5 L) with a Buick Dynaflow automatic transmission. The original car employed two carburetors - one which ran on premium gasoline when driving normally and another which used methanol when the accelerator pedal was stomped. This Hot Wheels faithfully recreates the silvery finish of the original, which the designer himself used as a daily driver. Still being shown in a General Motors museum, after 60 years, it still catches the eye.
The '51 Le Sabre Concept has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
