28-Litre Fiat Set For First Public Outing in 100 years at 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Fiat S76, unofficially the fastest car in the world in 1911, will make its first public run for over 100 years when it tackles the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb on June 25-28 as part of a special category of an earth-shattering Edwardian leviathans.

Just two S76s were produced by the Italian manufacturer, with the aim of snatching the records for the flying kilometre and flying mile from the ‘Blitzen’ Benzes. The S76 achieved the mile record with Pietro Bordino at the wheel at Saltburn Sands in 1911 and was officially recorded at over 135mph on a kilometre attempt at Oostenede in Belgium, only to be denied the record as it was unable to complete a return run within the specified one hour.
