Remember the Ferrari SUV that we shouldn’t call an SUV?

Still want one.

Fascinating story about an utterly bonkers car and it’s equally eccentric owner… There are no typos here - it’s a 27-litre, 2¼-ton, Spitfire-engined, road legal two door sedan!

Jonny Smith gets the chance of a lifetime to drive the ex-Guinness world record Spitfire aero engine Beast on the street. Built around a 27-litre V12 Mk35 Rolls Royce Merlin engine, The Beast has been in the same family since it was conceived back in the early 1970s. No power steering, 2.25 tonnes, 27,000ccs and 2mpg…
