The Deperdussin Monocoque was a single piston-engined propeller monoplane from 1912 by the Deperdussin Company. It featured a monocoque construction and streamlined fuselage. It broke several speed records (108 MPH in 1912, 126 MPH in 1913[1]) and won the Gordon Bennett Trophy, and the floatplane version was the winner of the first Schneider Trophy.
