183 of 365 Metallic / Metall / Metallia

A Metallic Monster
with a 27 litre Rolls Royce Meteor motor.
I quess this is used in some kind of competitions...
It's beautiful in a strange kind of way though.

And my son had me to put in this additional information:
The Rolls-Royce Meteor (also sometimes known as the Rover Meteor) was a British tank engine developed from the Rolls-Royce Merlin aero-engine, by W. A. Robotham and his chassis design and development division at Belper.

Great artistic photo, excellent information,you can tell him that it was also used in the saladin, Armoured car Which I had the fortune to ride in in my youth and it just purred, like a kitten.

Nice colors and angles. Very interesting looking car.

That is a whole lot of engine and a short passenger area. Must have been a kick in the seat to ride in. You have a good perspective on this one, accenting the front end.
