The Mormon Meteor was built by August Duesenberg and Ab Jenkins off of a Duesenberg Model J chassis back in 1935. With a high-compression ratio of 7.5:1 for a supercharged engine, the 6.9 liter inline-8 produced 400 hp, enough to propel the car to two new records on the Bonneville Salt Flats. The car achieved a one-hour record of 153.97 mph, and a 24 hour record of 135.57. These speeds were remarkable enough that the 24 hour record held for 26 years until it was beaten in 1961.

Designer Mehdi Alamdari has created this striking homage to the 1935 Mormon Meteor that incorporates a number of the original car's design cues in a body that also showcases contemporary knowledge of aerodynamics.
