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 for an attempt at the land speed record. Power was supplied by two Bristol Jupiter radial aero engines with 600 bhp per engine. Sadly the car was destroyed by fire on the beach at La Baule, a popular motor-racing venue of the period.
