Locomobile Racer of 1908, the winning car of 1908 Vanderbilt Cup Race, is probably the most famous car built by the American company. The car featured ladder-frame chassis and was powered by 990 cubic inches 4-cylinder engine that produced 90-120 bhp. In the Cup race the car was driven by George H. (known as Joe) Robertson. This victory was the first win in an international race by an American driver in an American car. As to car manufacturer, Locomobile American Company was a pioneering American automobile manufacturer founded in 1899. It was involved in motor racing in the early years starting from Gordon Bennett Cup in 1905, but very quickly dropped out from the racing scene. Locomobile production ended in 1929.
