The RUF Automobile RTR..a 650hp RWD MANUAL 911
What an awesome bit of kit. Based on a 991.1 Porsche 911 RUF have turned this car into an animal, potentially creating the last high horsepower rwd manual 911 you can get..sadly it poured with rain which put a dampener on things but I thoroughly enjoyed driving this car. This car is currently for sale at £250k. Excuse the focusing at the beginning, stupid camera. Follow me on http://instagram.com/sammooresphoto Thank you very much to RUF UK for letting me drive the car. https://www.rufautomobile.co.uk/ http://instagram.com/rufautomobileuk Music: Jessica Hart - Soul Phazed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8jNcz30DAE • Jessica Hart https://soundcloud.com/boxedtreats https://twitter.com/BoxedTweets https://instagram.com/jess_sweet_hart https://facebook.com/jessicahartmusic





Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911. (Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw ) Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @ 69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903. This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920! Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011. Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz and other historic speed record contenders: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/tags/blitzenbenz/interesting/ Specs: displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³ bore 185 mm / 7.28 in stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in compression 5.8:1 power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm specific output 9.3 bhp per litre bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne
