Putting aside all the "hee hee ha ha" over the name, it's a pretty impressive car for the '50s.

8 second 0-60
2 seconds faster than the Cadillac of the time, while more luxury than a Rolls-Royce

"Faster than a Cadillac, more luxurious than a Rolls-Royce, built by an airship company, and ordered by kings, the Gladiator should have been the finest vehicle ever made in 1950s America. It had previously unheard-of features, like an electrically-operated retractable hardtop, two years before the far more complex Ford Skyliner."
