A bit bigger than a 500 or a Topolino, but still going strong

28.4 Liter 4 cylinder Fiat 'The beast of Turin'

EACH cylinder has a displacement of a Methuselah bottle of wine (8 normal bottles). And there are four of them

... yessss! This is a REAL car! And you can see the road ahead, before you overtake a Ferrari!

"Despite hitting a recorded speed of an astonishing 134mph, the record attempt failed. This is partly because the team recording the speed didn’t get consistently clear readings, but also because the tram driver wouldn’t alter his timetable! Duncan again: ‘Duray wasn’t allowed to run at the same time as the tram which ran alongside the road at the sea front. The driver of the tram refused to deviate from his timetable so Duray was severely hampered as to when he could get two clear runs in. Add to all this the terrible weather… "

... I recall that I saw the Fiat Mefistofele ("devil") at Goodwood a few years ago. But that one has a smaller engine of just 21.7L. Model year 1923. It reached a top speed of 146 mph in 1924.
