The first Auburn car was introduced in 1900.
Their first car was a single cylinder, chain driven, with solid rubber tires, and tiller steering.
The price tag was $800.

The Auburn 652 was powered by a six-cylidner engine which was mated to a three-speed gearbox. They had a two-speed rear axle and four-wheel hydraulic brakes with power assist. This was one of the last models to be created by the Auburn Company, as they went out of business just a few years later, in 1936.

Very few were ever made.

Employing imaginative designers such as Alan Leamy (who was chiefly responsible for the 1933 Speedster) and Gordon Buehrig (who modified leftover bodies to produce the 1935 851 Speedster, and facelifted the four-door), Cord built cars that became famous for their advanced engineering as well as their striking appearance, e.g., the Model J Duesenbergs, the 1935–1937 Auburn Speedsters and the 810/812 Cords. The Auburn Boattail Speedster was a car frequently seen in Hollywood and was powered by a 4.6L straight eight that, with the popular supercharger option(150 hp), could top 100 mph.
