1970 Vauxhall SRV
First shown at the 1970 Earls Court Motor Show, the sleek, imposing shape belies its four-door practicality. But with an adjustable front aerofoil, electric self-leveling air suspension and a ‘manometer’ to measure air pressure on the car’s hull, the SRV illustrated Vauxhall’s forward thinking technology stance that endures to this day.
The car was designed by Wayne Cherry who had also worked on the radical XVR concept from 1966. It features gullwing doors with hidden handles and is an extreme study on angular design.
