Based on the Panhard Dyna, the Dynavia was designed to penetrate the air very efficiently. With a drag figure of 0.26, the design criteria were more than met. Powered by the same two cylinder engine as the Dyna, the Dynavia's top speed was 20 km/h higher (18%) as a result of that low drag figure. Some cues of the 'interestingly styled' Dynavia can be found in future Panhard models.

Panhard constructed two Dynavias and made sufficient parts to built a third one. The featured example is again owned by Panhard and is seen here in the Musee National de l'Automobile, the ex-Schlumpf collection, where it is on permanent display. The second was sold to Switzerland and used on the road for many miles until its life was cut short by an accident.
