At the time of its launch, it was not only the fastest American car, it was also the most expensive. The Model J was also the first Duesenberg developed under the ownership of E.L.

Created to compete with the world's best cars, the Model J was fitted with a massive Duesenberg designed, Lycombe built 7.0L inline eight engine. As was common at the time, Duesenberg created the engine and chassic, while bodywork was done by a range of coachbuilders. In 1932, a supercharged version of the J was introduced, this car was known as the Model SJ.
