What is the world's longest Duesenberg?

When the Duesenberg was first introduced, there were many that tried to make it smaller and shorter. However, Rudolph Bauer decided to do something different. He wanted to make it larger. Specifically, the artist wanted to make a Duesenberg that would be the longest to ever be built.

Bauer built on the car’s most prominent factor, its length, and built on it. The car consisted of twenty-seven hood louvers that emphasized on the car’s length. Bauer also placed spare tires on the back of the car to give it more length. The total length of the car totalled 20' 6" once Bauer had completed his masterpiece.

Bauer only drove 9,884 miles in his Duesenberg before he parked it in front of his New Jersey mansion. He died from lung cancer in November 1953 and his wife ended up as the Duesenberg’s new owner. She sold it to another owner who kept it untouched and in immaculate condition and the famous Duesenberg was then sold at an RM auction in January 2007. The price tag for the piece? $2,805,000. This made it the second-highest priced item to be sold at that auction that week.
