@ Super8: No, in their time, in terms of performance, Duesenbergs were in a class of their own, no comparison with another car from the 30s or 40s would be a fair comparison.

@ Super 8 : Yes there is . but I don't understand why you ask me about the fast cars in 30' 40' or 50' .
The Duesenberg's are Fantastic , but still your compare is unfair .

@ Bijan: The problem is, I can't found any fast car like Duesenberg in 1930's. Even Bugatti Atlantic itself can't beat the power, acceleration and top speed of 2 door Dusenberg SJ. You should check the comparison. My question, is there any fast car like Duesenberg besides 1950's cars?

@ I don't think so , don't agree with you Super8 .
In 1930' there are so many Fast cars , from Riley to Bugati ... from Bentley to Alfa Romeo's and so ...
And still I believe 120hp vs 320 hp is unfair.

@ Bijan: It's fair since there are no choice for Supercars at 1930's. You want supercars, you can only chose Delahaye, Delage and Cord while hypercars or luxury supercars, you can only choose Duesenberg. Not like today where we can choose anything we want and had around same strenght.

So that's true. Duesenberg is the marque who produce fastest car in the world more than any other marque. They produce fastest coupe, fastest 4 door, fastest speedster and fastest race car and all of them happen from 1933 to 1938.
