Holkar 1935 Duesenberg SJ Speedster, Coachwork by J Gurney Nutting
Maharajah Yashwant Rao Holkar’s fascination for Art Deco design grew in me through my friendship with his son Richard who carries his legacy with much aplomb living in that nostalgia. It reminded
me of the cars the Maharaja loved and lived with, his Duesenberg being one. This Duesenberg, which was painted in the Holkar preferred colours of Sun-glow orange and black, was also built by his favourite coachbuilder, Gurney Nutting.
