Year(s): 1935

The 1935 Duesenberg SSJ is the most ahead-of-its-time car ever built. At a time when 60 mph was considered blazing, the Duesey could reach up to 130 by revving up its twin-cam, four-valve supercharged engine, and it had as much ground clearance as a Jeep. Because of that insane performance and its radical style, it also had a price tag of more than $12,000 when the average cost of a car was $625. Even the Bugatti Veyron wasn't that far ahead of the pack when it debuted.
