Click here to download printer friendly versionThe Bimotore was commissioned by Scuderia Ferrari to compete with the German Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz. It was powered, as the names suggests, by 2 engines, one in front and one behind the driver. It was a very powerful car with some ingenious new features which were required to attach both engines to the rear wheels; it had central steering and independent suspension. It was to be used on the faster tracks and fast it was but the tires couldn't handle the immense power and weight of the car. It set a speed record of 327km/h. The program was cancelled, because incredible tire wear prevented it to challenge the 'Silver Arrows'.
