Cord was the brand name of an American luxury automobile company from Auburn, Indiana, manufactured by the Auburn Automobile Company from 1929 to 1932 and again in 1936 and 1937.
The Cord Corporation was founded and run by E. L. Cord as a holding company for his many transportation interests, including the Auburn Automobile Company. Cord was noted for its innovative technology, such as the front-wheel-drive on the L-29, and streamlined designs.
The original car body of this coupe was designed by Count de Sakhnoffsky, a famous car designer, who immigrated from Russia. The car won the first Grand Prix awarded to an Ameri-can chassis in Monte Carlo Concours d’Elegance in 1930 and several other prestigious awards in the same year.
The restored car was recently sold at an auction for $2.4 million, making it the most expensive Cord in the world. This stunning car will continue to impress enthusiasts around the world for years to come.
