Video: Watch an Italian 28.5L beast rise from dormancy after 100 years

If old rust buckets are your sort of thing, then you’re going to have a field day. An interesting video popped up on Duncan Pittaway’s Vimeo, which showcases an old car with a 28.5L inline four from a Fiat S76. And after sitting for nearly 100 years, the old east was awakened.

The Fiat S76 is known as “The Beast of Turin” and was built in 1910 to be the world’s fastest land speed record car, and it achieved that title, clocking in at 116 mph.

The engine had some interesting features such as a modern four-valve per cylinder design with multi-spark ignition and overhead cams. The result was around 300 bhp.

Check out the video after the jump.
