Million Dollar Auction: Marmon HCM V12 2-Door Sedan Prototype

Classic Cars / Comments

A 1932 Marmon HCM V12 2-Door Sedan Prototype will be up for auction at Pebble Beach with expected prices to hit the $1 million mark.

A vintage 1932 Marmon HCM V12 2-Door Sedan Prototype is up for auction at Pebble Beach later this month. The vintage Marmon Prototype was created in the 1930's as a way to boost the company's reputation through the hard times of the Great Depression. Marmon did get around making it through that financial slump for a brief period; it never really came to its full fruition and into mass production.

The vintage 2-door prototype has been dubbed one of the most exceptional yet relatively unknown prototypes ever made with a very interesting and significant history behind it. What also makes the vintage 2-door sedan special is that the car was created without a full team of engineers. Under the hood, the Marmon HCM delivers an output of 151hp mated to a two-speed manual transmission, while reaching a top speed of 113 mph during an initial test in July 1932 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Marmon HCM also accelerated from 10-50 mph in 12.77 seconds.
