The Darracq V8 engine just might be the greatest car engine you have never heard of. In fact, this engine that was built by the French automaker, A Darracq and Company Limited, is so great that it held the land speed record back in its day.
Now, with all of that having been said, you can be forgiven for not knowing the Darracq V8 engine since it was the master of all beasts of the open way back in the 1920s. And, the big beefy engine in the video below is from that era as well.
This big and beautiful French engine has not been started in 97 years. So, I must ask you: do you think this Darracq V8 engine will start again?
