28 litre Fiat

Postby brenton.roy » Sat May 23, 2015 6:28 am

Yes, I know this is a motorcycle club!, but this came through our VVMC so I peeked...
Maybe worth a quick look before going back to proper Ariel stuff.

email blurb..
This is a " MUST WATCH " if you are any type of gear-head !
This MASSIVE old race car has a 1700+ cubic inch engine with only
FOUR cylinders. That's over 425 cubic inches per cylinder. Good
GRIEF , and I thought the Allison V-12 with the 1400+ cubic inch airplane
engine was big. What a sound this huge beast makes as it fires directly
out the side of the block , ( no exhaust system whatsoever ) , and
there's several videos and links to watch as this old " Beast of Turin " is
brought back to life after 100+ years.

It goes to prove the old saying. " If you're going to have one. Have a big un."

It's a quiet little thing; bit like a Spitfire without the wings!

Absolutely amazing, you have to look more then once !

At 1"45 you can see some unidentified feathery thing narrowly escaping !
