Last week I mentioned that the Cosworth-Ford DFV engines were designed to be a stressed member of the chassis, but were not the first. I asked which car was the first? It was the Lancia D50, remembered for the two pods between the wheels, used as fuel tanks. Six were made, and Juan Manuel Fangio won one of his World Driver’s Championships in a D50.
So to this week. A 30 cylinder engine was built during WW2. What was it used for?
