When this 1913 37/95 Henri Labourdette, Carrossier, Tourer was built, it was regarded as the most powerful production automobile in the world. The Mercedes engine had two blocks of two-cylinders each with three overhead valves - one intake and two exhaust - per cylinder, and a single camshaft mounted high in the crankcase. The displacement was 580.7 cubic inch (9.6 liter) and developed 95 horsepower. The fuel was delivered by a single Mercedes-design-sliding piston carburetor. A four-speed gearbox, with a gate change shifter mount on the outside of the body, delivered the engine's power to the dual chain-driven rear axle.
The car's estimated top speed was roughly 70 mph although it was reported that with light-weight coachwork a 37/95 could almost attain the coveted 100 mph. (The 37/95 indicated the engine output with the second number indicating the actual horsepower and the 37 indicated the horsepower for taxation purposes in Germany). The car sold for $8,000.
