Started reading about these magnificent automobiles about a year ago and became fascinated with them. Here is a little history for those who have never heard. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duesenberg These cars were the equivalent of owning a Bugatti Veyron, or Enzo Ferrari or in dollar amount, a $1M-$2M car today. Basically you purchased the chassis and engine and you took it to a coach builder, who made the body of your choice, so no two Duesenbergs were alike. The only commonality among them all was the powerful straight 8 cylinder motor, that pushed out around 245 hp in base form and an optional supercharged straight 8 with 320 hp, over 80 years ago. These cars were well capable of speeds of over 100 mph. At the time when an average car cost $200-$500, a "Duesy" commanded $20000+, often up to $25000. The biggest Duesenberg private collector in America has to be Jay Leno, with about 5-6 in his collection. Without further ado, please take a look at the video below, This particular model below is the highest car one ever sold in America, at just over $10MM. The "Whittell Coupe" Duesy was built for California playboy George Whittell, hence its name. [VIDEO][/VIDEO] I will post more images of Duesenbergs as this thread goes along.
