320 bhp, 420 cu. in. DOHC inline eight-cylinder engine with centrifugal Supercharger, three-speed manual
transmission, beam type front and live rear axles with semi-elliptic leaf
springs, and vacuum-assisted four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase:
•Arguably the most beautiful convertible coupe on the Duesenberg chassis
•One of three produced, and the only supercharged example
•Believed equipped with an original Supercharger
•Formerly the property of Raymond Lutgert and General William Lyon
•Driven extensively, including the Texas and Wyoming Duesenberg Tours
As advanced as the Model J Duesenberg was upon its introduction in 1929,
most of the technical advancements contained within were confined to the
body and chassis. The design of the front end and fenders, as well as that
of most coachbuilt bodies, still bowed toward late-1920s convention, albeit
stylishly. As a result, by the mid-1930s, the Duesenberg still held
mechanical prowess over virtually everything else on the road. From a
design standpoint, however, it was looking rather dated.
J. Herbert Newport, who had succeeded Gordon Buehrig as Duesenberg's body
designer, set out to do something about that. Among his creations for the
Model J was a new convertible coupe, which incorporated the best of the
Duesenberg's trademark styling cues with the curves of modern streamlining.
The traditional upright radiator shell and headlights were now accompanied
by deeply skirted and rounded fenders, designed by Alex Tremulis and added
at the factory branch, over 17-inch wheels. The beltline began as a slender
molding running alongside the hood, and as it reached the windshield, it
expanded out along the sides of the body into a polished "sweep," which
then fell back along the long fender like a trailing comet.
The design's most innovative feature, however, was its convertible top.
Most ragtops of the period were clumsy and challenging, requiring a small
gang to operate properly. Newport's convertible coupe incorporated a
"semi-automatic" top, based on one previously created for a Rollston-bodied
Duesenberg convertible victoria. The owner would unbuckle the top from the
windshield frame, and then slip a hand crank into a chromed socket on the
side of the body. With a few turns of the crank, the top would fold to the
rear of the car and out of sight under its flush-fitting metal lid,
producing an open two-passenger car whose lithe, flowing lines made it the
Duesenberg equivalent of the Mercedes Special Roadsters of the era.
Production of this body style was handled by the A.H. Walker Body Company,
of Indianapolis, one of several firms that produced bodies for Duesenberg
under the classy pseudonym of "LaGrande." With Duesenberg's days waning and
the Great Depression still largely at its zenith, Walker built only a mere
three examples of the Newport-designed convertible coupe.
Of the three cars, 2563/J-530 was the only example built with a
factory-supercharged engine—the powerplant today famously referred to by
enthusiasts as "SJ." The engine bore a centrifugal Supercharger, which was constantly engaged, and
produced whizz that is music to the ear of the Duesenberg enthusiast, as
well as an additional 60 horsepower. That made the
final brake horsepower rating of an SJ
Duesenberg something near 320 horsepower, allowing it to
get ever-closer to a top speed of 140 miles per hour, over 20 miles an hour
faster than a naturally-aspirated
Perhaps it was that added performance that prompted Chicago banker John
Nichols to trade in his earlier Duesenberg Murphy Convertible Coupe,
2475/J-405, for this car. Nichols chose to part with his second Duesenberg
only two years later, trading it in at South Shore Buick of Chicago in
February 1937, with 50,899 miles showing. The car then passed to a Packard
dealership in Evanston, Illinois, and for well over a decade, it would
remain largely within the Chicago area, including time spent in the care of
legendary used Duesenberg purveyor John Troka. In 1940, it was involved in
an accident, which resulted in the frame being replaced with the current
unit, 2405. At some point, the car's original bell-housing, J-530, was
replaced with J-515, thus renumbering the engine; importantly, the original
engine does still remain in the car today.
In 1957, the Duesenberg showed up on the opposite coast of the United
States, incongruously parked on a used car lot in "Glitter Gulch,"
Hollywood, California. Early enthusiast Thomas Magee, of nearby Inglewood,
spotted the car and picked it up for $1,500, and he then took it home and
began its restoration. As so often happens with restorations, life
intervened, and Magee sold the car and another Duesenberg to his good
friend and fellow collector, Nathan Derus.

2014 Mercedes E550 Cabriolet Test Drive & Luxury Convertible Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/e-class/2014/?id=32972 With the
Mercedes E550 Cabriolet you get impeccable German engineering and super
high quality materials. This is a fantastic touring machine in its own
rite. A base E-Series car starts at $51,400 and the E550 Cabriolet tested
here starts at $67,300 but the price can balloon with additional added
packages and options.
The engine powering the E550 Convertible is a twin-turbo 4.7 liter V-8 that makes 402 horsepower and 443 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy figures are 17 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the
highway. The great thing about this engine is a large torque curve. All
that power and torque are necessary though as the E550 Cabriolet weighs a
hefty 4048 lbs.
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet has a couple of great features to
improve comfort of the passenger. The first is a system called AIRCAP which
is essentially a spoiler on top of the windshield and a deflector behind
the rear seats. These 2 automated parts work together to push the air flow
p and over the passenger compartment minimizing wind. The second feature is
the AIRSCRAF system which is a set of vents integrated into the head rests.
These vents produce warm or cool air for the drive and front passenger.
The Mercedes E550 Cabriolet has a split personality. You can drive the car
in ECO or Comfort mode which makes the car loft around on the roads. But
switch the dial to Sport and the entire car wakes up and performs
