If the 1911 Mercer Raceabout was the first American car to find success using the “race and sell” philosophy, the Stutz Bearcat was among the first to parlay that supercar status in to celebrity status. After mixing it up with the Raceabout on tracks and winning 25 of the 30 races it entered in 1912, the Bearcat grew into something of an automotive icon, famously finding its way into the hands of George "Cannonball" Baker for a record-breaking 1915 cross-country run. These exploits garnered the Bearcat a name recognition that still holds up 80 years after the company’s demise.

A car without bodywork doesn’t have an "interior" per se, and like the Mercer Raceabout, the Stutz Bearcat made its driver and ride-along mechanic — that is, passenger — a part of the machine. Brake levers and the throttle pedal were both located outside the car, and there is no semblance of a roof or doors. The MotoMeter gauge displayed Stutz’ logo: "The Car That Made Good in A Day," a reference to its Indy 500 performance.

The underslung frame placed the axles above the frame rails, lowering the car’s body for a lower center of gravity. This gave the crude leaf-sprung solid-axle suspension a performance edge over that of many of the Bearcat’s contemporaries.
