In 2001 the need for speed could not be suppressed and he convinced Wendy to drive to Bonneville Speedweek to check it out, and a plan to build a streamliner took shape. A return fact-finding trip in 2002 has convinced him to proceed with the construction of his own machine. A twin-engine, diesel-powered, air-conditioned Pierce-Arrow Streamliner was capable of speeds of 350 kmh on an existing record of (149 mph) 240 kp.
Details Of The Speed
Horsepower required (based on RSR Aero-horsepower calculator) 200 mph (325km) = 182 horsepower 225 mph (365 km) = 256 horsepower 250 mph (405 km) = 350 horsepower 275 mph (446km) = 463 horsepower 301 mph (488km) = 610 horsepower
