I have seen several videos of that "Beast". Most impressive. I also followed its recreation on "theoldmotor" website. Again, most impressive!
Thank you Steve for sharing the link.

Great videos of an incredible "beast." Thanks for posting.

Beast is right. A real fire breather. That is the best presentation of it I have seen.
Thanks for making my day.
Rich

I think Rob Heyen should drive it on the New London to New Brighton!

A little more for those interested:

1. FIAT is an acronym for Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino, I bet most of you can translate it.
2. The car has an in-line 4 cylinder engine that displaces 28.5 liters.
3. It has 3 spark plugs for each cylinder.
4. The first S76 was produced in 1910 and kept by FIAT.

It's legal in Britain to drive a car on the road when it has no lights?

It is legal in most states in this country, if the car was built before lights were required. That detail varies some from state to state. I believe (don't quote me on this) in Califunny, it is about 1921, but I forget the exact year. When I had my 1919 gray model T racing car, I was told "no problems" by the CHP about it having no lights. They mentioned the exact year to me at that time.

I do not know what the rules are like in the British world. And since the "Beast" is largely a recreation (although one of the best and most accurate ever done!), I don't know how that affects the car in England or Britain. My understanding is that there are a few pieces of the car that are original from the real original "Beast". That could make a difference.
