the motor was designed in 1928 by Harry Miller and Leo Gossen

This engine recorded OVER 1400bhp!!! on the AAR engine dyno, after a few minutes they decided to stop the test as the power was so fearsome they though it would destroy the dyno!!!!

These motors from AAR were the FIRST cars ever to record a 200mph average lap at Ontario speedway.

Unbelievable history here, these are the best racing cars ever!!!!

Dan Gurney was so confident in their superiority that he bet he could beat ANY F1 car around the Nürburgring and put down $100,000 US of his own money as a bet to any challengers man enough........................... NO ONE TOOK HIM UP ON HIS OFFER!!!
