ewwww......that car (in my opinion) started the bad side of the tuner crowd. It combined the poor furnature color scheme with a big exhaust, a huge wing and a HUMONGOUS turbo!


eh, whatever tickles your fancy.

Depending on gearing... It set a record in 1974 @ 225 mph at the Telledega banked oval...

BMW had the same problem as Porsche did during this era. Both were building 1200+ hp cars for qualifying (that's the only time the 917-30 used all 1600 horses), but their engines were literally a melted heap of junk once they were done.

As if the 5 litre turbo engine was not suficcient, Porsche were working on larger displacement engines to provide better drivability and fuel efficiency.

As for making these engines last, that was'nt much of an issue. BMW and TAG were extracting upwards of 600hp/litre in their 1500ccm F1 engines and making them last 500kms, making a 250hp/litre engine last twice that was'nt much of a problem. These were low compression sledgehammer-and-anvil built engines.

Aerodynamics were a huge issue though...

I disagree with your reliability comments Aspen. I have several Porsche and BMW books that beg to differ.
