The Beast of Turin – The Rebirth of a 1729 Cubic Inch S.76 Fiat – The Monster is Spinning

Stefan Marjoram was at Duncan Pittaway’s shop yesterday in the UK and captured the scene with this drawing of the big Fiat engine yesterday and reports:

I heard it chuff and woosh for perhaps the first time in close to a hundred years. It was being turned over by a tractor to check the oil pressure, etc. There were a few issues that need to be looked after, but it won’t be long now and the engine will be bolted into the chassis and the bodywork can go on for the final time.

Let’s all hope they make it to the Goodwood Festival of Speed later in the week with the Monster. You can view many photos and read the rest of the story we have been following  for the last three years covering the Fiat S76 here.

  1. What a bad whammer-jammer
    Its kind of like the automotive version of the infamous Gee-Bee Racer
    airplane of the 1930s,which was basically a flying engine.

  2. Yes, I hope they get The Beast back into the car, but I also hope they don’t rush it just to make Goodwood. Looking forward to pictures and sound.
