The old axiom of “nothing beats cubic inches” was examined with four examples. National Speed Car 7 Liter, Bentley 4.5 Liter Super Charged, Corvette Grand Sport, Ford GT40 Mk. IV. Each featured an engine that was among the largest for its time. Brute power wasn’t always enough to make them winners.
Located in Philadelphia, PA, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Through our theme, “The Spirit of Competition”, we celebrate the history and evolution of these magnificent machines.
Assembled over 50 years by Dr. Frederick Simeone, the Museum contains over 75 historically significant cars including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette, Ford, and more.
