The video is a trailer of a full length film, scheduled for February 2015, that will cover the history of that period and tell the amazing story of the Fiat S76 rebirth after 100 years and a 10-year restoration.
The S76 was powered by a four cylinder engine with a displacement of over 28 litres. It is believed to be one of the largest – if not the largest – car engine ever built. The S76 is 3.75 meters long and 1.30 meter wide, and has a total weight of 1,650 kg. The engine has a power output of 290 hp at 1,900 rpm.
In 1911 the car, driven by Pietro Bordino, achieved a speed record for the mile. Two years later it reached 135 miles per hour on the kilometer run at Ostenede in Belgium, but the record was not homologated.
