What brand of cars is considered the legendariest?

Fred and Augustus Dyyuzenbergi built motors for airplanes and high-speed vessels still to 1 - y World war, with its beginning they received the mass of orders, including and from the Russian army and fleet. After the end of military operations they began to build cars for races, first of all for legendary indianapolissky five-hundred parts - there they 4 times took the first prize...

After such progress brothers decided to offer which - as to ordinary consumers. But alas - their cars were too specific. Too much in them it was used technologies from the world of races that determined quite high price so the American consumer simply thought: For what such nemeryany price? I will buy - I better Pakkard or Pierce - Errou - at the same cost they will be smarter! . Skill of production - not that criterion by which the American chooses goods - give it more chic...

But the outstanding businessman Erret Lobban Kord came of brothers to the rescue. It was known that to 23 - the m managed to earn and squander to years three times 100 thousand dollars - the sum fabulous for those times. What he was only not engaged in - worked in police, was engaged in a musical gramophone recording, production of chewing gum... Then he saved automobile firm Auburn from bankruptcy, having sold out 700 cars which were becoming dusty in its warehouse - he just guessed to paint them fashionable colors and to add the chromeplated finitflyushka. Thus Mr. Kord can be considered as the initiator of tuning in America. Now he conceived to found the automobile empire.

Here outstanding engineers were also necessary for it. And it gave to brothers Dyyuzenberg full of cards - Blanch - to create something the biggest, magnificent - it is unimportant how many it will cost.

Brothers in reply went all out - gave out on - the mountain of a car of six-meter length, with the line eight of 6,8 l and 268 hp. - is two and a half times more, than at the American serial motor most powerful at that time - krayslerovsky Red Sil. This motor was installed on the classical chassis with quite simple frame and not cutting beams of bridges. But nevertheless in a machine design there were very curious technical highlights...

For the sake of involvement of rich clients - Hollywood stars and the European, and also Arab and Indian aristocrats the car was supplied with all last technical novelties from those that are evident at the first look. On a control panel there were also an exotic then tachometer, and still the whole scattering of devices, including height indicator sensor above sea level. And the mechanical calculator who was automatically operating nearby systems of the car, in particular switching on the gear pump giving oil to all points of greasing of a forward suspension bracket through certain periods - the predecessor of present on-board computers still there stood!

According to Dyyuzenberg`s drawings the firm of Laykoming which was also belonging to the Cord was engaged in production of motors, and the outstanding stylist Gordon Byyorig undertook development of design of bodies. On its drawings these bodies made firms Murphy and Lebaron, but on them did not put the plate - instead of it the emblem of fictional body firm La Grand flaunted. However, Dyyuzenbergov the most different firms - American Dzhadkins, Walker, Byoman and Schwartz, the French Veymann and Figoni e Falaski, the Italian Farina and Turing, the English Garni Natting were engaged in style... Some of them gave something absolutely improbable!

By the way, Dyyuzenberg with a body a spidster from studio Walton we can see in an anime The Ghost in an armor 2: Innocence there by it there goes a hacker Isikava...

These Cars (from capital letter) were under construction almost manually, without any conveyor, all their details were turned with precision, directly - jeweler quality. Therefore cost fabulously much. In the list of clients Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich appeared, bought such car as a gift to the loved Marion Davies, the publishing magnate William Hirst, six copies got William Wrigley famous for the chewing gum... The special sample on the shortened base was ordered by the famous film actor Gary Cooper. This car reminded the racing plane. Its motor was equipped by the supercharger that increased power to 320 forces - thus Dyyuzenberg surpassed Bugatti, let out 300 - strong Royal. To other Hollywood handsome man, Clark Geybl, right there was a wish the same car, and he ordered it, without reckoning with expenses - laid out for it nearly all the fee for a role in the blockbuster Mutiny on Baunti ...

Dyyuzenberg was issued incomplete 10 years then the firm was closed - just the Cord was bothered by automobile business. He decided to pass to production of uranium, and after war based the FM network - radio stations on which entered practice of playing of records according to applications of listeners. In the State of Tennessee, the disk - the jockey worked at one of them the legendary Alan Fried who for the first time pronounced publicly the word fate - N - a beater .

The senior from brothers Dyyuzenberg, Fred, died in 1932 - m to year, during road tests of new model of Dyyuzenberg with the motor equipped with the supercharger. Augustus who remained alone under such blow practically lost ability to technical creativity.

His son Fritz in 60 - e tried to revive years brand, involved in this undertaking of the outstanding stylist Virdzhild Eksner (making also then attempts to revive not less legendary brand of Bugatti), but the invention was not crowned with success - do not send a stylish and prompt type of a brogema with oar doors to a series...

The last from Dyyuzenbergov was collected in 2 years after closing of plant in a workshop of one of dealers. A certain German painter was his customer. He received the car for only a few weeks before war...

It is precisely unknown how many it is let out Dyyuzenbergov. Seemingly early model A 260 ekzeplyar, its improved version X - about one hundred were made. And J developed by request of the Cord it was made, according to different data, more than 480, but less than 490. From them from 30 to 35 it was the share of konmpressorny SJ, it was also made 3 or 4 JN with the extended base and reduced from 19 to 16 diameter of rims, 2 SJN - the same, but with a komrpessor, there were 2 special shortened compressor SSJ too - those cars for Cooper and Geybl... Practically all of them reached up to now as prizhiznenno received the status of masterpieces and carefully remained the owners.

And now look at least on photos though generally ideally such things should admire in the museum, as well as any work of art...
