Jay Leno's Chrysler Turbine Car
Jay Leno's shows off his rare 1963 powered by gasTurbine engine The car sounds like a giant vacuum cleaner at the Friday Classic car night at Bob's Big Boy in Toluca Lake
The fourth-generation Chrysler turbine engine ran at up to 60,000 rpm and could use diesel fuel, unleaded gasoline, kerosene, JP-4 jet fuel, and even vegetable oil. The engine would run on virtually anything and the president of Mexico tested this theory by running one of the first cars--successfully--on tequila. Air/fuel adjustments were required to switch from one to another.
only 50 were made

Jay Leno's 1970 Challenger
Part of the success of the initial offering of the Challenger (it outsold all pony cars that year except leaders Mustang and Camaro) was the multitude of engine options available for the car. 1970 and 1971 would prove to be the only two years of real performance for the car, as tougher emission standards would require Dodge to take away many performance options by 1972. But in 1971, Challenger buyers could choose from nine different engine options. In fact the only engine Dodge offered that was not available for the Challenger that year was the smallest available, a 198 CID slant six-cylinder.
Instead, the standard engine for base model Challengers was a 225 CID slant six that produced 145 horsepower. This could be upgraded to a 318 CID V8 rated at 230 horsepower for $102 or a 275 horsepower 340 V8. Performance driven R/T (Road/Track) models came standard with a 4-barrel 383 CID V8 that produced 335 horsepower (a 2-barrel version of this engine also was available as an option for the base models). All Challenger models also could upgrade to two versions of a 440 CID V8, one the "Magnum" producing 375 horsepower and one the "Six-Pack" producing 390 horsepower. Topping them all was the 426 Street Hemi, which was rated at 425 horsepower.
By 1970, it was clear that while pony car fans desired power, many did not want to sacrifice luxury to fulfill their performance needs. The Firebird introduced its Espirit luxury model in 1970, and the Mustang Grande had first appeared in 1969. Dodge offered Special Edition trim for those that wanted to make their Challenger a little more luxurious. Appropriately branded the SE trim package, Dodge marketed the luxury models as "the little limousine." The package could be added to both the base and R/T models, and included a vinyl roof, "honest-to-goodness real leather facings on the seats," and an overhead console with door, fuel and seatbelt warning lights.

"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.
