History About The Duesenberg Motor Co. & The Duesenberg II: When the Duesenberg brothers teamed up to engineer specialized racing engines for vehicles, good things transpired for those lucky enough to own one. In fact, a Duesenberg finished 10th at the Indianapolis 500 in 1914, but would prove the endurance capability by bringing the first American win at the French Grand Prix in Le Mans in 1921. From that success, Duesenberg would eventually win the Indy 500 in 1922, 1924, 1925, and again in 1927. To no surprise, this caught the attention of E.L.
