Jay Leno's aerodynamic Walker bodied 1934 Duesenberg coupe(J554)... has a leather top, and was designed from wind tunnel testing

Bodied by the firm of A. H. Walker of Indianapolis. In 1934, the Walker Aerodynamic Coupe cost $25,000, making it the most expensive Duesenberg ever produced. It was made for pharmacy tycoon Josiah Lilly, president of Eli Lilly corporation

Though ugly, the headlights are deliberately designed to increase airflow, though Jay described them as looking like they were as ugly as bad implants on a stripper

By the way, I learned that this parking spot is always reserved for Jay. That's kinda cool.

this car was also the cover car for Vintage Road Car magazine, May 2012
