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:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne
Vintage Racing - 1950s Indy Cars startup and race. LOUD!!!
Chris Ashworth records a series of 1950s Indy Cars at Michigan
International Speedway. This was a vintage racing event that was associated
with the Concours d'elegance of America, where these cars were on display
after this event.
This event was incredible! I got to wander in the pits and the garage area.
You will hear these cars starting up right from the tailpipes, and you will
see them driving on the track from the pits.

Bugatti Type 35 B - Very loud start up!! 1 of 45 ever build!! 1080p HD
I recorded this beautiful blue Bugatti Type 35 B during Concours d'Elegance
Antwerp. It was the most successful of the Bugatti racing models. The Type
35B featured a roots type Supercharger.
The final version of the Type 35 series was the Type 35B of 1927.
Originally named Type 35TC, it shared the 2.3 L engine of the Type 35T but
added a large Supercharger like the Type
35C. Output is 175 hp (126 kW) with upgraded compressor and 45 examples
were made. A Type 35B won the 1929 French Grand Prix.
Thanks for watching and feel free to leave a comment behind.

Dyno. The motor is a
4.9L flat 12 which has been upgraded with EFI via a Bigstuff3 PRO SEFI ECM
and twin Precision turboturbochargers. At this stage the motor is running
6psi Boost and has no internal
modifications. We ran it from 3500rpm to 7500rpm and it produced 650hp and
600lbs*ft of torque. Enjoy!
Also I just posted a new video on my channel showing a walk around of the
car with some of the new wheels and brakes mocked up on it. If you guys are
