The Mohs Ostentatienne Opera Sedan was a radical design
for a luxury sedan which was introduced in 1967.
Developed by Bruce Baldwin Mohs of Madison, Wisconsin,
the Mohs Ostentatienne Opera Sedan featured a range of
unusual and unique engineering solutions.
Most obvious was the single rear door which, when opened,
took part of the roof with it. By relocating the door
to the rear, Mohs was able to replace the doors with reinforced
steel beams underneath the bodywork to improve side-impact
The massive tires were filled with nitrogen instead of
air, and had a claimed lifespan of over 100,000 miles.
Inside the Mohs Ostentatienne Opera Sedan was a refrigerator
and a range of ultra-luxurious materials. The instrument
panel featured 24ct gold inlay and Walnut trim. On the
floor was Ming dynasty carpets!
Only one example of the Mohs Ostentatienne Opera Sedan
was ever created. It recently underwent a restoration
back to original condition.
