  1. I was expecting that first car to take off like a helicopter because of that engine it has in it

  2. Those Vigor inline 5’s sound sooo good with a straight pipe! it’s like having a poor kids version of a V10, sounds like a miniature Dodge Viper

    1. Lewis Zerlewski I drove a Vigor and it had good acceleration and handling between 3 and 4th gear but was surprising a beast on fuel

    2. I have a 1996 Ram 8.0 V10, and it sounds like a ’69 Dart slant-6. Exquisitely mediocre exhaust tone.

  3. The Beast looks like a sports version of the queen family truckster. Perhaps Clark Griswold would wave made to Wally World in half the time; or twice the time.

    1. @Bud Lewis Anyone that doesn’t stay current with oil changes in a $75k truck would be less than smart. And with diesel you need to think of things a bit differently than with a gasser. You must factor the longevity of the engine as savings. The 7.3 can easily go 500k with no major engine work. And with a new diesel truck near $100k, oil changes are chump change. With your 8.0 I would think fuel cost would have been a much greater factor than oil. when tuned to economy, I can pull up to 24 mpgs on the highway. I still get 18 romping around town. I actually get far better economy than I did with my Toyota PU. My 7.3 is a 2001 and has 200k on the clock and she pulls like the day I bought her. I also own a 95 wrangler and a 76 Nova, but the diesel is my daily. I will drive her till the day I slam down on the accelerator and body stays behind. Easily the best (and most trouble free) vehicle I have ever owned.👍

    2. @Kyle McCourt I was joking; obviously even frequent oil changes would be cheaper than gas. Believe it or not I don’t really keep BP financially viable with my fuel/oil purchases, either – it just feels like it. I bought my truck to pull my new Airstream home, and was open to either gas or diesel. The Dodge was just the first suitable vehicle I found – it could just as easily have been a diesel. Other than the trailer, I’ve never bought a new vehicle because I always used my [normally] meager wages for making rent/mortgage/child chow payments. Feeding 5 kids costs about the same as a Ferrari. But with used vehicles from private parties, even if they’re in good condition a parts payment will ensue eventually. Labor was/is free because I was/am the parts changer (after 50 years I still can’t claim mechanic status). Anyway, my truck gets 10 mpg rolling unladen down a grade in neutral or loaded up and pulling my 23′ trailer up a steep hill in 5ᵗʰ gear; it doesn’t care. It gets the same mpg when it’s shut off. I’m envious of your ability to praise your truck; when I make that foolish mistake I’m underneath my car within a week. It happens so reliably that it’s no longer superstition; it’s faith. One can only get slapped so many times before the lesson sinks on. Scoff if you will, but I know what I’ve seen. If the first viable truck I’d looked at had been a diesel I probably would be comparing notes with you now, but it wasn’t. If you take care of a gas vehicle they, too, will last for an extended time. I had a 27mpg, ’63 Falcon Ranchero, 170ci straight 6/3-speed manual that I worked like a rented redheaded step-mule, and I sold it @ 274,000 miles for twice the $150 I paid for it when it was 10 years old. While it was mine I changed the usual expendables (brakes x 2, clutch x 2, generator [yes. generator], starter, etc.). And a 45-minute head gasket RnR when my little brother overheated it towing my mom’s 2-ton ’62 Chrysler wagon home 22 miles on the freeway. But that’s it; no other repairs. I can boast about it now that it’s gone. I wish I still had it. My Dodge mostly sits now; I put less than 100 miles a month on it. But even shut off the goddam thing _still_ goes through gas like Trump after eating a pot of pinto beans. I’m flummoxed.

    3. @Bud Lewis hahahahah too freaking funny!!! You should write for popular mechanics. (If magazines are still a thing). I am my own mechanic as well. The cost of a diesel mechanic is a good third more costly per hour and I mostly enjoy working on it. Your Ranchero is like my recently totaled 89 Jeep wrangler. I couldn’t pass up buying it even though it had the 4 banger that I heard all the horror stories about. I figured I would kill it and do a SBC or a small diesel swap. Well, I wound up building the entire Jeep with that motor in it, with a 5.5 inch lift and pushing 35″ tires, Even with those tires, the old girl NEVER left me stranded, until that A-hole crossed the centerline and hit me head on at a combined 80 mph. My 76 Nova has an original 67k on the clock and has never broken down in its entire life. It has been in the family since new. I also have a 40 year old ford diesel in my boat that I am currently replacing the exhaust manifold on. Get ready to crap yourself… $2700 just for the part. Now that’s a lot of BP stock!!!!! lol But Ill slap that sucker on and be good for another 40 years. This diesel is another notorious long runner, commonly going for 10,000 hours. Gas marine engines usually top out at 2k. Ya gotta pony up for the quality toys! And she runs at around a gallon an hour, unlike the old evinrude on my last boat that ran around 12 gph so that’s a ton of savings especially when you factor in what 2 stroke oil is going for these days. Why is it so much fun to burn fossil fuel??? Cheers and good luck keeping everything running!

    4. @Catalina Are you named for the ’65 Pontiac I used to own? With its 15″ wheels that thing’s 389ci 2-bbl/TBH350 wasn’t all that off the line, but it would flat _roll._ I never knew how fast it would go, because the speedo only went to 120. Continued mashage of the gas pedal caused the needle to keep leaning to the right until it hovered over the turn signal indicator light. At that point the bald tires (I was young. Emotionally, not chronologically.) usually made me hair out. And the hole in the power steering tank. And the rear wheel bearing that still had ⅔ of the ball bearings in it.
      Jeez. I should be dead.
      On a subject of gas grading, in 1970 the regular gas at the Fed Mart was “101+ Octane” and 24.9¢/gal; Premium 107 octane. I could put $1’s worth in my ’56 Jaguar MKVII Saloon and drive around all night. That car came with an option that magically removed women’s clothes when they stepped inside.

  4. The Lotus type 56 was a great piece of engineering, stuffing a P&W STNB6B turbine in such a small package is not an easy thing to do. I work for P&W at Edwards AFB in Southern California.

  5. We have seen that yellow beast around Epsom a few years ago. I did not even know that car is such a beast!

  6. Cadê os BR ?? Esse Rolls Royce Merlin (The beast) deve aumentar a rotação do planeta com a sua arrancada..

  7. The 27 litre V12 engine fitted to ‘The Beast’ that you refer to is in fact a Rolls Royce Merlin unit, most commonly used in the Spitfire aircraft. The un-supercharged version of the exact same motor is called the Meteor and was mostly used to power tanks. Wicked motor, but not very fast and nowhere near as rare as this video might lead you to believe.

  8. FYI the second car was powered with the Rolls Royce Merlin engine which is used in spitfire ! It’s very famous for it’s sound !!

  9. My ex-bro-in-law had an Acura Vigor, he worked for GM at the time. The turbine car sounds like the original Batmobile, which was also supposedly a turbine engine. Great choices! Here is a video of the Starliner converted into a flamethrower! https://youtu.be/kY-4K1zF918

  10. I Wonder what the fuel consumption is of the turbine engine. I know the Y2K motorcycle uses 34 liters of diesel and gets around 50km, but the car would weigh more so it’s probably worse.

  11. Don’t be fooled, Jay Leno probably owns all of these rare cars + all the parts cars in existence.

    1. I would love to see him owning the turbine engine car in the video and also the chrysler turbine

  12. As a helicopter mechanic, i could only feel sorry for all those people in the crowd that didnt have ear pro in front of the backwash of that turbine engine 😂

  13. Bom dia !!!!
    Só máquinas fantásticas !!!!
    Muito obrigado pelo vídeo e parabéns pelo canal.
    Abraço do Brasil…….

  14. If the beast has really the motor, as it’s said, it’s the RR-Merlin with 1280 PS (941 kw), the version used in the Spitfire had nearly 1600 PS, the same motor has been used in Tanks, up to 800 PS..
    After war it should be used in civil airplanes.. but too noisy..😂

  15. This Ford at 5:53 having the “Cammer” engine, I’m informed by reliable sources, a timing chain in there that’s a whole 8 feet long! One helluva engine. BTW, I am subbed here and left a thumbs up and a tap on the bell, I really appreciate your style in showing the cars with their own sound and no music or voiceovers. Keep up the good works, friends.

  16. There’s one drivable howmet in France, the owner came at my engineering school and they started her in front of the school. That was absolutely insane 😃
