VIDEO: Watch a 100-Year-Old, 28.5-Liter Engine Scream to Life. “This thundering thing is the Beast of Turin. The Fiat S76 land speed record car. It’s a behemoth, nearly as tall as a man, with a four-cylinder engine displacing a staggering 28.5 liters. In 1911 that massive engine propelled the Fiat S76 to 135-mph, an extraordinary accomplishment at the time, and one that snatched the land speed record away from the Germans.”

Meanwhile, I drove 135 in a Mitsubishi Eclipse years ago, with air conditioning and an awesome stereo.
