Completely new body in very modern style. The look of car reminded some critics of a bath tub, and it consequently gained the soubriquet "Taunus Badewanne". At a time when competitors boasted that all four corners of the vehicles were visible from the driver’s seat, the new Taunus instead offered a streamlined form. However, in Germany the concept of streamlining in cars was associated with narrow passenger cabins reminiscent of the 1930s and of the still popular Volksagen Beetle. The new Taunus, however, provided greater interior width than its predecessor despite being no wider on the outside. Although the 1.7 litre version was launched with the same 60 PS power output as the outgoing model, the new model was a full 10 km/h (6 mph) faster, which was attributed to improved aerodynamics and a lighter bodyshell.(Wikipedia)- – -Der 1960 vorgestellte Taunus P3 (= Projekt 3, d. h. die dritte neue Pkw-Konstruktion der Ford-Werke Köln seit Ende des 2. Weltkriegs) ist ein Mittelklassewagen von Ford Deutschland. Er präsentierte sich in einer vom Designer Uwe Bahnsen kreierten neuartigen, sachlichen Form, für die der Slogan „Linie der Vernunft“ geprägt wurde, die ihm aber auch den Spitznamen Badewanne eintrug.(Wikipedia)
