Sure, there are a handful of larger diesel engines to be found out there on the internet; however, it is tough to find any engine that is any cooler than the huge antique engine that is the Duvant 9 V.O.S. diesel engine in the video below. Ohhhh…. And the start up burbling sound of this giant engine is just as awesome as its its big beefy looks. I have done a bit of research on this enormous diesel engine and found that the Duvant company made in it way back in 1962 to power the famed Auteuil Racecourse in Paris, France. Now, what do you guess the horsepower of this engine to be? WRONG! According to what I’ve read, it is only 1600 horses, which seems low to me considering how small a 1600HP engine these days can be. Yes, I realize that torque is what matters when it comes to powering a racecourse and know horsepower does not directly relate to torque, but 1600hp seems low to me. What do you think?
