Now that born-again luxury brands like Maybach and Bugatti are doing so well, it comes as no surprise that the American legend is to be returned to production. The original cars such as the 1930’s Duesenburg Model J featured a 265hp straight-8 engine with double overhead camshafts and could reach speeds of up to 119mph. The brand is slated to be launched in January next year with new cars being built off a donor chassis. Rumour has it that a Mercedes Benz CL platform will be used.
