Brutus, the fire-breathing, airplane-engined car built in Germany is set to make an appearance at the UK’s Cholmondeley Pageant of Power, an event that is scheduled to take place between June 15 and 17, with the vehicle set to offer both static and dynamic thrills to the public.
This comes after the Brutus and the Packard-Bentley 42-litre, also an airplane-engined vehicle, both made an appearance on Top Gear. In fact, the three-day Pageant will feature an entire collection of 20th century cars using aeroplane engines.

The list of other aero-engined cars includes a 23-litre Maybach Zeppelin, the 24-litre Napier-Bentley and the fearsome 42-litre Packard-Bentley.  Including Brutus, which comes with 500 bhp the combined power output for these four cars totals more than 2,800 bhp.

James Hall, Event Director for the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power, said: “Aero-engined cars are a rare breed, but these are some of the most fascinating and exhilarating machines people are likely to ever encounter.  We can’t wait to see what the crowds make of these unique cars, as there is simply nothing else on the road that can match them for sheer drama.”
