@ Fangio Man: You're right about the weight, I'll bet these cars were like tanks, big, heavy engines, thick steel bodies, many creature comforts (for their time), amazing cars.

@Shaggy
Curb weight is, according to several sources, correct. The later Hartmann V16 is also as heavy as this and has a similar construction.

@ Fangio Man: Nice, a V16 Caddilac, Is that curb weight correct?, if so, it outweighs a Chevrolet Suburban, that's pretty heavy. These cars were fast for their day. The 1931 Cadillac V16 makes it onto my list of dream cars. :)
