The rear view of the Dubonnet is the most striking, looking almost like a rocket ship. André Dubonnet and Jacques Saoutchik believed the aerodynamic contours would allow the Xenia Coupé to break a land speed record. Unfortunately the start of World War II prevented Dubonnet from attempting this feat in 1939.
