…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Radial Engine Goggomobile?

Radial Engine Goggomobile

The Goggomobil isn’t exactly an awesome car, and 360 horsepower is no longer an inspiring figure, but when that horsepower comes from a 10,220cc, 9-cylindar radial engine that was originally commissioned for 1930’s airplanes, and it’s rear mounted in a custom Goggomobil, the sum is much greater than the parts.

To put these two together, Uwe Wulf had to build almost everything from scratch, including a custom-built two-speed transmission and independent rear suspension.

It might not be the flashiest car in the world, but I challenge you to find one that’s more impressive.
