400mph in '47 - The Railton Special

Powered by twin supercharged 12 cylinder Napier Lion engines, getting the power to the ground through a simple 4wd sett up, it went 394.19 in 1947 ultimately becoming the first car to break the 400 mph barrier. Designed by Reid Railton and driven by salt flat vet John Cobb. Dig that driver position, imagine scooting along at 400mph with you melon sticking out of that gofer hole!
