CHRYSLER'S "NASSAU" SEDAN FRONT VIEW

CHRYSLER'S "NASSAU" SEDAN FRONT VIEW

Los Angeles Convention Center

There isn't a lot to ogle when it comes to concept Nassau's straight-on frontal view. The grille is is absolutely Chrysler born and bred; one can "hear" this car coming down the street from two blocks away because of it. Or "thanks to it", if you like that style. The entire area is also nicely sculpted, and while many people no doubt think that the large egg-crate grille is necessary to bring cooling air into the engine compartment, the reality is that these days, almost all the fancy grillework is for show only; cooling air enters the engine compartment on many, if not most cars today (and into the future) through inlets under a vehicles' front fender.
