Napier Railton Mobil Special land speed record car on Bonneville salt flats, Utah in, I believe, 1947  where Cobb became the first man timed driving at over 400mph on land and set a record not broken untill 1964! The car is shown having it's amazing one-piece aluminium body lifted into place over the twin Napier Lion eingied, 4 wheel drive chassis prior to a run. Nice atmospheric shot of a historic moment in land speed record history with nice period details like the vehiclkes in the background and the uniforms of some of the mechanics and crew.

10x7 inch (254x178mm)
