A New Automobile Wonder.

The New York Times
April 11, 1915


A new racing car, the like of which the world has never seen, is said to be under construction for the next Indianapolis 500-mile race by the Mercer Company of Trenton, N. J. Unofficial reports state this new wonder to possess a motor that turns over 3,900 revolutions per minute, without a drop in power curve, a performance hitherto undreamed of in the automobile world. Its mechanical details are being carefully guarded until the Indianapolis 500-mile race, all public demonstrations being tabooed until that time. Eddie Pullen, holder of the world's road racing record of 87.8 miles an hour is being touted to drive the car. It is thought that with this new marvel he will make all his former records look out of date.
