An evening pause: In 2012 I posted a video of this company’s V12 miniature engine. They’ve now built something even more impressive.

Hat tip Tom Biggar.

    Was that motor running on fuel? Didn’t seem so. Looked like an electric motor or air pressure was turning it. After all, where was the distributors, plugs and fuel lines. I’m just curious as it looks amazing.

    Mechanical in function, but in essence, an amazing work of art. Great Pause, Bob!

  • The engine appears to be running on compressed air. Even so, a remarkable piece of work. I’d like to see the turbo version.
