one of the first results in youtube for CGT, don't know Fred but you sir have one amazing vehicle. I am actually planning to pick up an 06 CGT from Motorsports of Scottsdale, just need to get my business off the ground and flip around 80 more houses! LOL but one day^OMG Fred's car!! :drool:
some tests show well over 600...(closer to 650)Easy, and no competition:
That's the BRM V16 Supercharged, I believe it's from 1953
The sound is from an old recording, though the original is about 8mins long... It can be heard in this next video, though the pictures in the montage are of a later model BRM
Turn up the volume. Loud.
Oh, and the engine, it's 1.5 liters. That's 91.5 CI. And it's about 600HP...
Epic motor, isn't it... I have a drawing of the engine somewhere at home on my macsome tests show well over 600...(closer to 650)
so many cool things about that car. mirrored crank. two cyls firing at the same time at all times to even out the pressure on the crank...so at all times there are two exhaust and two iginition strokes going on...some crazy stuff...the pistons were small...i think smaller than two inches in diameter. the stroke was also less than 2 inches in diameter. it also had a two stage rolls royce blower. 135degree v.
and this was all designed in 1949!!!
