Chaparral 2J @ 2005 Monterey Historics
Demonstration laps of the Chaparral 2J driven by Vic Elford during the 2005
Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca. The 2J had two fans at the rear driven
by a snowmobile engine to evacuate air from beneath the car, sucking the
car to the road. In the video you can hear the snowmobile engine over the
bass note of the Chevy V8. Phil Hill & Jim Hall are driving two of the

Chaparral 2J Start
Raw avi to get the best quality for you. Firing the "big" engine on the
1970 Chaparral Chevy 2J at Goodwood 2011, a 7.6litre big-bloke "moose
motor". You get a couple of short blasts of the "small" 2-cyl 2-stroke
snowmobile engine, but this had a fuel pump problem and needed a quick
re-build before it would run without fuel being poured direct into the
inlets. Watch the "Ferrari 312PB start" clip to get the full effect of this
engine once it was running, 2-cyls easily drowning out 12, at least a BRM
V16 is worth the pain..... I am sure this is why the other Can-Am teams had
this amazing car banned, not only was the 2J competitive but it gave the
other race teams a headache and stopped them spending time in the paddock
working on their own cars.
Red Bull Project X2010 prototype - the construction
Red Bull has released a new video that shows how the X2010 (aka X1
prototype) was transformed from a Gran Turismo 5 fixture into a full-scale
Built by Industrial Design Consultancy, the real life X2010 features
individually milled sections and a design created by Red Bull's Chief
Technical Officer Adrian Newey.
While the mock up doesn't have a powertrain, the virtual X2010 has a
twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that produces
1500 PS (1103 kW / 1479 hp) and 714 Nm (527 lb-ft) of torque. This immense
power in combination with a fan that creates a suction effect with immense
downforce allows the futuristic car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (96 km/h)
in 1.4 seconds, 0-200 mph (322 km/h) in 6.1 seconds, and onto a top speed
of 280 mph (450 km/h). Lateral acceleration can reach 8.75G - at the very
limit of what the human body can withstand.
