A new vision for the future
For his Activa concept car, Art Blakeslee designs the lines of a huge low sedan, facing the future: a fluid scarlet body, rear-hinged doors, and futurist interior controls.
Lovers of the latest technologies are not forgotten: four-wheel steering, traction control, and hydractive suspension renew the fun of driving. Steering, braking and suspension are controlled together by three electronic computing units coupled to the hydraulic unit. The V6 engine corresponds to 3 litres PRV 24-valve 200hp.
At the forefront, the Activa, called Activa 1, prefigures the coming XM and Xantia – which owe their hydractive suspension to it – and the Activa 2 concept car of 1992, with a more conventional Coupé shape.
