It's the Weymann Speedster, back again! This classic Duesenberg epitomized class and style in the 1930s, as well as set the standards for technology and power with its supercharged 6.9-liter 320-hp DOHC "straight-8" engine, giving it a top speed of over 207kph in top gear. Amazing speed for the time! Also amazing was the price, which was between $15,000-$25,000, which doesn't sound too crazy today, but back then the average American income was only about $2 a week! Thus, the Duesenberg Boattail SJ Weymann Speedster was indeed a supercar for the super-rich.
This is Bandai's reissue of their classic Duesenberg kit, but the toolings seem as sharp as ever, with no hint of flash or any other signs of age showing at all. The kit features a highly detailed engine and interior, with multi-piece whitewall tires and plenty of chrome parts. The hood, convertible top, and rear trunk lid are removable to reveal all that amazing detail within. Body and chassis are molded in black, with clear and chrome parts. Tires are in black vinyl with white plastic inserts. Who knows when Bandai will release this classic kit again, so you'd better grab your doozie of a Duesenberg now!
