before clicking on this link make sure your surround sound speakers are cranked up !!!! ....at the 3:15 mark sit back close your eyes and enjoy the onboard sounds as you can almost smell the race fuel and get sensory overload

this is an old 1960's formula 1 motor from BRM ........ (2) flat 8 motors connected together at their cranks by a idler gear producing 600hp with a rev limit of 12k rpm it was called the BRM V16
