The RP-V8 Macroblock engine comprises Suzuki GSX-R Hayabusa cylinder heads, mounted to a dedicated dry-sump crankcase. A flat-plane steel billet crankshaft transmits power to the gearbox, while a gear drive rotates the Formula One-specification scavenge pumps, twin oil supply pumps and the coolant pump.
A photograph of a Bugatti racing car being fuelled, taken in September 1932 by Harold Tomlin for the Daily Herald. The Bugatti eight cylinder car was about to take part in a 500 mile race at Brooklands, Surrey. It was to be driven by Count Stanislas Czaykowski, the only foreign competitor. Czaykowski was a wealthy, Paris-based Polish aristocrat. He was killed the following year when his Bugatti crashed during a race at Monza, near Milan, Italy.
