Stutz automobiles have always been known for their sporting qualities. The well-known Bearcat was one of the great early American sports cars, and was the principal rival of Mercer at the racetrack. In 1927, the Blackhawk Speedster continued the Stutz reputation as a fast and sporting car by winning the Stevens Trophy Cup in record time as well as the AAA Stock Car Championship. In the following year, on the beach at Daytona, it became America's fastest production car. This Model AA is powered by a 298 cubic-inch, straight-eight engine. Fed by dual Zenith carburetors, it develops 95 bhp. The centrally lubricated chassis of the AA featured an underslung worm drive, which allowed for the production of low and intoxicatingly sensuous bodies. This one-off Bohman & Schwartz body features teardrop fenders, a low split windshield, 17-inch drop-center wire wheels, and Ryan headlights. The original cost of this Speedster was $3,195, and it is the only one of its kind in existence today.
