This little peach of a car is, among many other cars, is coming to my city on the weekend for a motor festival! Finally something I can look forward to at last!
A 1.5 litre V6 engine, turbocharged to within an inch of its life, producing at LEAST 1200 horsepower at maximum turbo pressure! Let’s put that into perspective; the fastest car in the world is called the Bugatti Veyron, IT has an 8 litre, 12 cylinder engine with FOUR turbochargers, all of that and it produces just 1001 horsepower!
These old turbo F1 cars were so powerful, that often you’d get wheelspin in 4th or possibly 5th gear!
Here’s a video of it in action, driven by the greatest F1 driver of all time, Ayrton Senna, it’s intense!
