Auburn 851 Speedster
Auburn Automobile was a company that started in Auburn, Indiana, in 1900 and soon grew up as one of the largest local manufacturers. It began as a mid-class offering, but in the mid-1920s, under the supervision of Errett Lobban Cord, it became a premium manufacturer offering elegant and fast cars (via JBS Collection).
Its finest model and kind of company’s swan song was the Auburn 851 Speedster introduced in 1935. The car had 4.5-liter straight eight engines with an optional supercharger and fantastic performance for the standards of the time. Unfortunately, the market wasn’t impressed and Auburn production ceased in 1937.
