World’s safest car, only one made

World’s safest car, only one made

aurora.jpgAndy Saunders has spent the last 12 years restoring the self-proclaimed world’s safest car, the Aurora. Designed in 1957 by an eccentric New York priest as the world’s safest car, it flopped and only one was ever made. It has foam-filled bumpers, roll cage and seats that swivel 180 degrees before a crash.
