In the 1958 models the engine cooling system is completely redesigned. The fan is replaced by a turbine shroud and the engine casing forms a channel for the air. The result is a much lower level of engine noise, especially at high speed.
A two color paint scheme is optional on Grand Luxe and Grand Standing models. The new Z16 and Z17 models have smaller wheels. 

Everyone who drives a DYNA is in love with his car : faithful in all circumstances, superior from all points of view, discreet..., the opposite of a spendthrift... the ideal companion for the road.
With its high performance and ease of servicing, with its 48 m.p.g. (40 m. p. U.S. gallon), 6 seats, 80 m. p. h., the DYNA is cheap to buy and cheap to run. Maintenance costs are very low.
The famous all-steel body, with its rigid base and flat floor defies weather and shock; the Panhard 'flat-twin' engine, air-cooled by impellor, is a triumph of French technique, designed and built to last.
The DYNA PANHARD takes six people and their luggage in complete safety, in complete comfort. Speedy, go-anywhere, you can ask anything of it.
The world's lowest cost per passenger-mile

Panhard Dyna Grand Luxe

"Silence-technique" throughout
All cars have their own particular "noise centres"; in the DYNA each noise centre has its own maximum silence design. For example, the 4-stroke Panhard engine is quietened by very accurately balancing its moving parts.
The Panhard engine is known all over the world for its characteristics, with its double-acting impellor which affords perfect engine-cooling and interior-heating - one-piece cylinder and head - sump capacity 3.85 pints Imp. (4.65 pints U.S.) - petrol consumption. 48 m.p.g. (40 miles p. U. S. gallon).
