Bristol Hercules demonstration
Another demonstration of the very same Bristol Hercules engine as seen
before on this channel. This was shot at the Borås airshow in Sweden this
summer to the enthusiastic crowd's delight. Sort of an abrubt ending to the
clip but nevertheless the sound is even better than in the previous clips
so turn it up and enjoy!
Meet Lucy, the flame-belching aero-engined car
It takes a special kind of madness to shoehorn a 27-litre V12 World War II
powerplant into a road car. Clive Woolley and son Bruce, of Randburg, spent
four years between 2009 and 2013 creating "Lucy", a spectacular marriage
between a 1933 Rolls-Royce and a V12 Liberty tank engine.
But the madness doesn't end there. As we speak, a similar vehicle -- the
"Rothay Special" -- is under construction in Cape Town.
Watch the flame-belching "Lucy" take to the road in this video...

Startup - full throttle - shutdown.
Guys on the left were working on RR Merlin which didn't startup at that
Shutter speed was automatic, since propellers look strange.
