1930 Rolls-Royce Speed Wagon

A shot of the open bonnet (hood) showing the 27 liter (1650 cubic inch) V-12 Merlin engine. This is the very same engine used in British World War II aircraft such as the Supermarine Spitfire, DeHavilland Mosquito and Avro Lancaster to name a few. The exhaust system is completely unencumbered by mufflers, so this thing is very loud!
