Auburn 851

On Display

From 1925, under E.L. Cord's direction, Auburn cars gained a reputation for luxury, style and performance. This exhibit, in common with all Auburn Speedsters, was personally tested to exceed 100mph/160.93kph by the famous record breaker, Ab Jenkins. An autographed plate on the dashboard records this fact.

This car is reputed to have been used by Marlene Dietrich in the film Desire. It is fitted with a period car radio.
