The speed record breaking car of the 1920's


BABS at Tjolöholm Classic Car event in late spring of 2004




A close up picture of BABS engine. It's a Liberty V12 27 litre Aero engine from 1918. 350bhp as standard but was modified to 500-600bhp.



My son Thomas had the very rare opportunity (in fact I think he was the only one at this event) to sit behind the wheel of this very nice piece of history.
