The Pierce Silver Arrow was a concept car designed by Phillip O. Wright, of which five were built in a record three months, and introduced at the 1933 New York Auto Show.

History[edit]

The car caused an absolute sensation, with a futuristic design, spare wheels hidden behind the front wheels, a wide-degree angle V-12 and a top speed of 115 mph (185 km/h). Five production models were built, but they resembled a more typical Pierce-Arrow and lacked many of the unique features shown in New York. Only three Silver Arrows exist today.

The Pierce Silver Arrow can be seen and driven in the computer game Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven, in which it is referred to as the Silver Fletcher.[1]
