World’s biggest car engine built in Manchester

Posted on 27 May 2009 by The Manufacturer

Manchester-based training and simulation device manufacturer EDM is preparing to deliver to clients in Germany what may be the biggest car engine ever built. Or, at least, the biggest car engine simulator ever built

Standing seven meters high, the stunning walk-through, semi-working model will stand at the entrance to a brand new exhibition at the famous Nurburgring race circuit, the home of Formula One in Germany and the site of the world’s longest permanent race track.

The enormous V12 engine is one of four interactive displays designed and built by EDM for the new Ring Werk attraction which opens its doors at the Nurburgring this summer. The other displays include working wind tunnels and a full size replica of a 1950s Formula One racing car.

TM will report on the exhibition launch in July.
