"Brutus" race car - 750hp 46L V12 1908

"Brutus" from Germany at Concours d'élégance Paleis Het Loo, Apeldoorn, Netherlands. An extraordinary vehicle that was constructed in the Auto & Technik MUSEUM SINSHEIM's workshops under the project name "Brutus", is - like the Maybach special racing car - also following the tradition of the Blitzen-Benz. After WW I many aircraft engines were available since Germany was not allowed to own aircraft. These engines were installed on old undercarriages and used to perform races. An undercarriage with chaindrive of 1908 was being used as a basis for the "Brutus" project. A 12-cylinder aircraft engine with 46 liters displacement and a constant performance of 500 hp at 1500 rpm or 750 hp at 1700 rpm, that was located in Spain by our club member Hans Dittes, was mounted on top. The attraction of this vehicle is not least due to the fact that it is going to reach a speed of far beyond 100 km/h at about 800 rpm only. After several years of hard work the vehicle was completed. It already was presented in action at many events.

Jeremy Clarkson vs 'The Brutus' Bomber BMW (TOP GEAR)
Relive the insta-classic TOP GEAR moment from Monday's episode when Jeremy Clarkson recreated the Battle of Britain - and faced off against a car called "The Brutus," a flame-spitting retro BMW.

Watch as Jezza takes this "extraordinary creation" out for a spin. "Almost immediately, 'The Brutus' began to spit hot oil into my face, and that was just the start of my problems!"
