  • La Napier-Railton est un modèle unique de voiture de course créé en 1933 à l'initiative du pilote automobile anglais John Cobb. Elle est conçue par l'ingénieur Reid Railton et fabriquée dans les ateliers de Thomson & Taylor, qui a également réalisé en 1931 la Campbell-Napier-Railton Blue Bird.Entre 1933 et 1937, la Napier-Railton établit 47 nouveaux records du monde de vitesse, entre autres sur les circuits de Brooklands (Royaume-Uni) et Montlhéry (France) ainsi que sur l'immense étendue de sel de Bonneville Salt Flats aux États-Unis. Elle conserve notamment le record de vitesse moyenne au tour de piste extérieur à Brooklands, établi en 1935 avec 230,7 km/h, puisque aucune autre automobile ne fut en mesure de dépasser cette vitesse avant la fermeture définitive du circuit à l'aube de la Seconde Guerre mondiale.
  • The Napier-Railton is an aero-engined race car built in 1933, designed by Reid Railton to a commission by John Cobb, and built by Thomson & Taylor. It was driven by Cobb, mainly at Brooklands race track where it holds the all-time lap record (143.44 mph (230.84 km/h)) which was set in 1935 and now stands in perpetuity since the track fell into disuse during the Second World War.Between 1933 and 1937 the Napier-Railton broke 47 World speed records at Brooklands, Montlhéry and Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.The car is powered by the high compression version (6.1:1) (RAF specification) of the naturally aspirated Napier Lion, a W12 of 23.944 litres (1,461 cu in) capacity, producing 580 brake horse power at 2585 revolutions per minute (recorded at 5, 000ft - performance at ground level may be different) .[citation needed] The 12 cylinders are in three banks of four (broad-arrow configuration), hence the triple exhaust system, and the engine has standard aerospace features such as dual ignition (magneto type) . The non syncromesh crash gearbox (aptly named for the horrible noises caused by a mis-shift) has 3 ratios. The fuel tank, located in the boat-tail behind the driver, has a capacity of 65 gallons (almost 7 times that of an average modern family car) and fuel consumption was approximately 5 mpg. Although capable of 168 mph (270 km/h) the car has rear wheel braking only.Postwar owners include Patrick Lindsay and Victor Gauntlett but it was purchased by Brooklands Museum circa 1997 with the support of the UK's Heritage Lottery Fund and other donors. It is maintained in fully working order and normally on display in one of the museum's 1930s motoring sheds. The car is run regularly and is usually present at the Goodwood Revival motor race meeting every September.
