Cadillac La Espada
One of the legendarily lost Motorama concepts was the beautiful Cadillac La Espada they designed as an elegant two-seater roadster. The La Espada featured several interesting and innovative features like a power top, which created curved surface when closed. Also, it had four headlights.
The car was a perfectly functional prototype with a Cadillac V8 engine pumping out 230 HP. And like all other outdated concepts, it was destined for the crusher. However, it looks like it never got there. The story is they sold the car to a private party and they stored it in their garage and rarely drove it. After that, it went to a scrap yard, disappearing shortly afterward.
