American car designer

Gordon Buerhig designed some of the most striking American cars of the 1930s, including the Duesenberg S, the Auburn Boat-Tailed Speedster, and the Cord 810/812 (which would later be recognized for its originality by the Museum of Modern Art).

Buehrig also taught at the prestigious Art Center College of Design.

In 1999, he was posthumously named one of 25 candidates for the international Car Designer of the Century award.
