The Stinger

2011 The Stinger by Window World

The No. 100 "Stinger" is a single-seater with a rear-view mirror — certainly not outlandish for a racecar in 2011, but definitely two defining aspects of its modern day interpretation of the 1911 Marmon "Wasp" — the first winning car of the Indianapolis 500. Window World made no compromises in creating the Stinger concept car to commemorate the centennial of the Indianapolis 500.

  • The engine is fully chromed.
  • The aerodynamics are state-of-the-art.
  • The color is taken directly from the original 1911 winner.
  • The Stinger's yellow and black color scheme and wasp-like tail in honor of its namesake pays homage to history. And with the support of Indianapolis 500 legends, the Stinger becomes a part of that history.
  • The signatures of over 200 drivers, dating back to 1949, make the Stinger a priceless salute to a century of excellence and the race of all races. Every signature of every driver tells a story — a story of exceptional achievement, and boundless hope.
  • For each signature, the Window World Cares foundation is making a donation of support in their honor. Window World Cares is a proud supporter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and the Veterans Airlift Command.
  • The story of the Stinger is a story of hope — for children battling life-threatening diseases, and for wounded or special needs soldiers who have battled for our freedom.
  • Honor is a defining aspect — for the 1911 Marmon Wasp, our legendary Indianapolis 500 drivers, American families, and those who have fought to protect us.
  • Window World is honored to present the 2011 Stinger in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Indianapolis 500.
