The art deco-styled Dynamic was a departure for Panhard,
whose stately and conservative cars in the 1920’s and 1930’s
were built for high-class clients such as bishops, military and government officials. It was the largest car ever made in its time with a unibody
construction, and it featured dual circuit brakes and an independent front suspension.
The timing was wrong for the Dynamic; it arrived when France was going through a period of social and political unrest. The Second World War was looming on the horizon and only 2,500 cars were made during the Dynamic’s first year in production.
