The engine was a 3.0L straight-6 that was mounted in the chassis at a 50-degree angle to allow for both a low center of gravity as well as a lower sleek hood line. The front-mounted engine was located behind the centerline of the front suspension, creating an ideal front-to-rear weight distribution. It featured an independent front suspension and a semi-independent swing axle arrangement in the rear. Massive drum brakes insured ultimate stopping power.
