1932 Auburn Cabriolet, 160A In 1932 the Auburn Automobile Company introduced the Lycoming V12 engine. It was a 393 cubic inch engine with horizontal valves, equipped with two carburetors and twin exhausts, with muffler cut-outs. The price was low but these cars sold very poorly in the depression economy of the early 1930s. The Auburn V12 was equipped with hydraulic brakes and a two-speed rear axle. They won a number of important races in the 1930s in both stripped and stock versions. Car production ceased in 1934 but the V12 engine was produced until 1960 for fire trucks. This car does 60mph easily and 80mpg is the driver doesn't pay attention.
