In 1972 John Dodd put a 27 litre Merlin aircraft engine on a Rolls Royce chassis. Rolls Royce sued him for using their radiator grille on the car without their specific permission. So he made his own. The car was completely road legal but lacked power steering. O-200mph in 5 second was described as "having someone grab the horizon and pull it under you" Top speed was a MEASURED 260mph
