The Tucker Lives!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Well, some of it does.

You may remember the Tucker Torpedo – which among other things featured a swiveling headlight that turned with the steering wheel; the idea was for the headlight beam to turn with the curves rather than point straight ahead.

The Tucker is gone – but the idea lives on.

Subaru offers a similar feature; here’s a  redneck demo to show you how it works!

  1. My gal’s ’05 Toyota Celsior (Lexus LS 430) has this turning headlight feature–they call it AFS, short for Adaptive Front-lighting System. Not really noticeable until you’re driving on twisty roads away from streetlights. I think it pivots up and down too-at least it seems to when driving up an inclined driveway.
