The Whitney Straight Type 91

If you looked at this picture and instantly noticed that both front wheels are in the air, you aren’t alone.

To this day the 1932 Whitney Straight Type 91 ex-Scuderia Ferrari Duesenberg is the fourth fastest car ever around the Brooklands Outer Circuit having achieved a top speed of 138.15 mph on 13th October 1934 in the hands of famous racing driver, Whitney Straight.

This wonderful car was recently restored by the Brooklands Museum, for a little more backstory check out the great piece at Hemmings here.
