1. FILM UPDATE: I'm afraid I was a bit optimistic in suggesting February for a completion date. The car has still to be driven and proper paid jobs keep getting in the way. Hoping the full-length film will be done by the Spring - but there will be another small film of it being driven soon! :)

    Quick compilation of clips showing some of the build and first firing of the FIAT S76 land speed record car in 100 years. At over 28 litres this was the biggest of the pre WW1 monsters (and the biggest car engine ever built) - engine design changed a lot thereafter. The proper film will cover the history of this exciting period and tell the amazing story of its rebirth after 100 years.

    (apologies to those missing the Ólafur Arnalds' music - I never heard back about whether it was ok to use it and so have decided not to risk it)
