Cord Automobile Company plans the design and production of the new Cord Model III. Well known to the American automobile collector’s market, Cord is associated with styling and quality that makes the brand highly valued. The new luxury Cord Model III will be the first vehicle to use the classic styling of vintage American-made automobiles with new product development in order to maintain continuity with the brand.
The company has developed its new product, the Cord Model III. This vehicle is a reverse luxury motorcycle designed for motorcycle enthusiasts. This concept vehicle is unique in that it offers two front wheels and one in the rear, thus allowing it to handle more like a car than a motorcycle. Unlike other three-wheel motorcycles on the market, the reverse design and classic car styling set this concept vehicle apart and allows it to appeal to a broad range of customers who are interested in collecting luxury brand vehicles and/or motorcyclists. Cord plans to focus initially on the Model III but does envision developing alternative drive vehicles under other brands.
