In this rare video look at the 1938 Hispano-Suiza Dubonnet, Peter Mullin and Jay Leno go over the design features of the car, from the unusual suicide door to the custom-fitted luggage compartment, and discuss the airplane-inspired styling done by coachbuilder Jacques Saoutchik. It's nice to see two serious auto geeks voice appreciation for everything from the latches and gas cap to the honeycomb-sculpted exhaust tips. And while we showed you some measly stills in yesterday's entry, you absolutely have to see the car in moving-camera video to appreciate the beauty of its lines.
The video also provides a look at Mullin's museum, which is laid out in the fashion of a 1930s Paris Auto Salon. One of the cars on display is the "Bugatti in the Lake," and Mullin recounts the fascinating story of why this car spent 75 years underwater.
