The Beast of Turin

Here's a trailer for an upcoming documentary that I CANNOT WAIT to see, The Beast of Turin. At 28.3 litres (and only 4 cylinders) the FIAT S76 has the largest car engine ever built................

That thing has the most savage sounding motor I've ever heard, couldn't imagine what it sounded like in person.

For the non-technical types, each ONE of the the four cylinders displaced 7.075 liters, or 431.74 cubic inches!!!!! That's mores than 2 Boxster S motors combined or one mid-year Big Block Corvette motor, PER CYLINDER!!!!

I would NOT want to be the one to handcrank that! I forget where I heard about this, but I am very excited for the documentary.

Can you imagine the torque that thing puts out - even with its very low compression ratio and efficiency.
The drivers must have had very large gonads racing on those tyres too....

I'm currently helping a friend restore his 1956 GMC firetruck, it has an inline 6 cylinder 503 cubic inch gasoline engine, I thought that thing was a beast lol. In shear size it pales in comparison to the video above, here's a pic of one of the pushrods from the firetruck motor....

Aren't those Brits quaint? Persian rugs on the garage floor and proper ties while wrenching.

Tea and crumpets anyone?

In comparison.... that engine makes my 200hp HRC motorcycle engine here sound like a little PC fan :/

Oouch lol
