Takes a Duesey

Discussion in '1921 Duesenberg Grand Prix' started by Duesey, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. First off, this is my 300th post, wa-whoo for me! Getting to business, this is one fine racecar, one the Duesenberg brothers could have hatched this car. Not only did it win the French GP, but Rudolf Diesel used a Duesenberg GP car to test his new diesel engines in, he drove them all over Europe.

    Its amazing how far car technology has advanced in the last 80 years

    Not really, the only major innovations were the dsic brake and the computer. The rest is fairly minor, this car is still conisdered fairly advanced, what with DOHC and hydroualic brakes.

    Don't forget aerodynamics on this car.
