QUOTE (Difflock @ 23 Aug 2004, 13:29)eRR... What's that 3rd exhaust pipe for? Apologies for my ignorance of the machine.
I believe the engine is 12 cylinder but three banks of four, one exhaust per bank.
Isnt it something like 20+ litres airplane engine?
They are great cars Jeff. I make sure I go to a couple of VSCC events each year and I've seen the Napier race quite a few times, the noise is unbelievable and to see him control the car round the tight and twisty Cadwell Park is a lot of fun. This year I snapped him and the Hassan Special at Silverstone.
Awesome lloking car.... I went to the Donald Campbell exibition up in the lake district last week end and found it intersting to find out - he set most of his land speed records in a varient of the Napier. The car has an intriging pedigree.
