The Awesome Thread has recently been getting a strong infiltration of cars. So why not have a dedicated automotive edition.

Same idea as the other one, except only car related awesomeness here please.
All things awesome here, pics stories, vids, links. not necessarily cool or funny, just awesome.

I'll start with these.

I'm reposting these from the Awesome Thread because they belong in this thread as well.




The Napier-Railton is AWESOME! A 73 year old car with a 600hp 27L W12 aircraft engine.

Also there is the Napier Bentley which is based on a Bentley 8 Liter chassis. It's got a Napier 24L W12 aircraft engine making ~550hp:

Wow! Talk about minimalism.

And look at the brakes. They're huge in diameter but tiny in contact area.

Sorry, I've managed to bring nerdiness to a thread about awesome. I fail.

And here is a video of it running. The wail is intoxicating.

I love how it looks absolutely stock, and even the engine looks more or less original.
Can you say ultimate sleeper?
