Description


Thank you for all your kind comments about my previous 3D models. As this superb car is not existing as a 3D model on the web, I decided to create it for DAZ Studio and Poser. This model will be soon available on 3DClassics' store at RR. If you want to appreciate the details, please look in full size. The Stutz Motor Car Company, was an American producer of high-end sports and luxury cars based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Production began in 1911 and ended in 1935. Stutz was known as a producer of fast cars including America's first sports car and, from 1924, luxury cars for the rich and famous. With its thrusting hood, side mounted spare, and rakish boat-tailed rear, the Blackhawk was one of the most beautiful cars on the road. With Greuter’s powerful Vertical-Eight engine, it was also one of the fastest. Stutz sold 5,000 cars in 1926, its best year ever. By 1928, the competition had caught up to Stutz. The endeavor had mixed results. That year a team of three race-prepared Stutz Blackhawks challenged at LeMans. One of them placed 2nd behind one of the mighty 4 ½ liter Bentleys. It was the best showing for an American carmaker at Circuit de la Sarthe until the Ford GT40 placed 1-2-3 in 1966. Unfortunately for Stutz, a crash at Daytona, an embarrassing engine failure in a prize race with Hispano-Suiza, as well as several other high profile promotions, all ended in failure. The company’s reputation was seriously damaged. By 1929, Stutz was losing $2.5 million annually. Stutzsold just 310 cars in 1932, and a mere 80 in 1933. Only 6 were sold in 1934, before the storied marque slipped beneath the waves of the Depression. Production ended in 1935 after 35,000 Stutz cars had been manufactured.

Encore une de ces superbes créations dont tu as le secret...mais, à ce que je vois, tu sais faire les bouchons de radiateur sans l'aide d'un artiste mondialement connu dans son quartier !!!
