14 PICS + 2 VIDS
An extraordinary vehicle that was constructed in the Auto & Technik MUSEUM SINSHEIM‘s workshops
under the project name “Brutus“
After World War I, Germany was forced to disarm under the Treaty of Versailles, which meant there were a few plane engines knocking around. And in 1925, one of them found its way into BMW's hands.
BMW then slapped it onto a 1908 American-LaFrance chassis for use as a racer. After much tinkering, it rolled out of the workshop later that year in all its lethal chain-driven, leaf-sprung glory. On account of its 12-cylinder, 46-litre engine and gently terrifying looks, the BMW techs christened it Brutus.
It produces 493bhp at just 1500rpm, and can pull 62mph atn 800rpm. It'll chew through 6.5 gallons of fuel over a 1.2-mile sprint - that's 0.18mpg - and kick out around 28,000g/km of C02. That's slightly more than 282 VW Polo Bluemotions.
