The notorious, fire-spewing 1910 Fiat S76 speed-record car known as the “Beast of Turin” will thunder and quake on The Grand Avenue automotive catwalk at the 2018 London Classic Car Show, to be held February 15-18.

The appearance of one of the world’s most-famous early racers will be a highlight at ExCeL London among the 60 vintage Specials, “unique machines that are steeped in history and mystique owing to their exclusive designs and often outlandish performance,” according to a car show news release.

Two Beasts of Turin, powered by behemoth 28.5-liter four-cylinder engines, were created by Fiat to break speed records. They were at the time the fastest cars in the world.
