    1932 - René Stapp, racing driver, and his 1932 land speed record car at Daytona Beach, Florida.

  • Bernhard Schipper

    René Stapp was a French racing driver who in 1932 attempted to break the land speed record with one of the most outlandish, and ugliest, cars to ever attempt to do so. The car was built in Paris between 1930 and 1932, then taken to the popular Daytona Beach venue in the United States for an attempt at the land speed record.
