|Focke-Wulf Fw 190|
The engine featured in this photoshoot is Pratt & Whitney's R-2800 "Double Wasp" radial propellar engine, which produces between 1,800 to 2800 horsepower (experimental versions reaching ~3,600hp). The engine mechanic also told me it was pulled off of a Vought F4U Corsair.
Does the 4.0 Liter V8 S65 engine in under the hood of the E92 M3 have any relation to the 46 Liter, 18 cylinder R-2800 in the background? I would say they might be very distant relatives. Would love to hear your comments and thoughts. View the photo shoot in my Flickr Stream.
