Auburn was a brand name of American automobiles produced from 1900 to 1937.
The Auburn Automobile Company grew out of the Eckhart Carriage Company, founded in Auburn, Indiana, in 1874 by Charles Eckhart (1841–1915). In 1919, the Eckhart brothers sold the company to a group of Chicago investors. The new owners revived the business, but it proved unprofitable. In 1924 they approached Errett Lobban Cord (1894–1974), a highly successful automobile salesman, with an offer to run the company. Cord countered with an offer to take over completely in what amounted to a leveraged buyout, which the Chicago group accepted. Cord aggressively marketed the company's unsold inventory and completed his buyout before the end of 1925.
But after the 1929 stock market crash, despite advanced engineering and aggressive styling, Auburn's upscale vehicles were too expensive for the Depression-era market. Cord's illegal stock manipulations would force him to give up control of his automobile holding company, which included the even more expensive Cord, and Rolls-Royce-priced high-performance Duesenberg brands. Under injunction from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to refrain from further violations, Cord sold his shares in his automobile holding company. In 1937, automotive production of all three marques ended.
In 1934, Buehrig was transferred to Auburn Auto where he designed the 1935 Auburn 851. Buehrig and a design team were then assigned to E.L. Cord's so-called "Baby Duesenberg" to build a smaller, more affordable car. Designed by Buehrig in 1933, it became the acclaimed 1936/37 Cord 810/812 Cords, a hit at the November 1935 annual New York Automobile Show—acclaimed for advanced engineering as well as revolutionary styling. His design work completed, he left the company in 1937. Cord built cars such as the Duesenberg Model J (1928–37), the Auburn Speedster (1935–37), and the Cord 810/812 (1936–37) that became famous for their advanced engineering as well as their striking appearance. The Auburn 851 was powered by a 4.6L straight eight that, with the popular supercharger option (150 hp), could top 100 mph (160 km/h) making it a popular model in the Hollywood market.

This original supercharged roadster was imported in 2017 do the Netherlands from where it came to the Czech Republic. It comes with a Dutch technical certificate and it is possible to register the car in EU. After a complete restoration in 2010 the car is powered by a Lycoming engine, 8-cylinder 4.6 liters, 150 hp with Schweitzer-Cummins supercharger. Dual-ratio two-speed differential, 3-speed fully synchronized transmission, rumble seat.
A more affordable version of the Speedster - same technology, one-fifth the price!

This car comes for sale together with other two Auburn 851 body types completing the trio of a Phaeton, Cabriolet and Speedster!
