The Amazing Packard Bentley Special ” Mavis ” Car. 42ltr 1500hp V12. — 17 Comments

  1. Isn’t the ‘Brutus’ running a 46 liter BMW airplane engine from 1924 that provides somewhere between 500-750 hp? The Mavis is using a WWII era bomber engine producing nearly 1500 hp. It’s also riding on a rather exquisite 1930 Bentley chassis, while the Brutus is using a truck chassis from 1908… How is the Brutus ten times better? Certainly, it may be the cooler car, but that’s a matter of opinion.

  2. Ohhh man, fuck you… Brutus’s ten times better than a Bentley… Even though this one is amazing. You brits are so goddamn cocky

  3. This engine has 2 exhaust valves per cylinder, on an aircraft only one pipe was used for each pair of exhaust valves so only 6 pipes were used on each side, in this car each valve has it’s own separate pipe.

  4. For me the Dunsfold Wings and Wheels event, is the best airshow in the south of England, I really recommend it.

  5. This is the Wings and Wheels event, right? I went to that some years ago, before the Packard-Bentley was even built. I’d forgotten slightly what it was about, but after seeing this I think a visit to a future event is on the cards.

  6. Packard Bentley vs Renault 40 CV vs Brutus BMW vs Tank Car

    Now that’s consumer advising! 🙂
