24 Hours of Le Mans - Episode 09 - The engines

The ninth episode is devoted to the engines, a determining element in the car's performance - and also the most secret! An engine must be reliable, powerful and robust. Since the very beginning the Le Mans 24 Hours have always been a real full-size technical laboratory for the manufacturers. The engineers can let their imagination run riot, especially with the new regulations. This is what had forged the renown and the richness of this event quite unlike any other in the world. Fred and his film crew went to the Porsche motorsports department in Germany to get a better idea of the exceptional power unit designed by the Stuttgart manufacturer for its return to endurance, and to put into perspective those of its rivals, Audi and Toyota.
