the beast of turin
Photos covering the rebuilding of a 100 year old land speed record car - the FIAT S76 - also known as 'The Beast of Turin' or 300hp FIAT. At over 28 litres, the four cylinder engine is the largest ever purpose-built car engine (there are cars with larger aero engines). Two cars were built. This car uses the chassis from one and the engine of the other. The gearbox and bodywork have been made using original drawings and photos. I'm also making a film about the story of the car and the reconstruction.
