» Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim «
After the foundation of a museum club by some enthusiasts in 1980, the Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim was opened in May 1981. Meanwhile there is a unique collection of historical vehicles, airplanes, machines and many other things of contemporary history.
Two of the most spectacular airliners can be seen above the roof of the museum: Tupolev TU-144 (nickname "Concordski") and Concorde F-BVFB. Both reached maximum speeds of more than 2000 km/h.

This room is dedicated to the experimental car Brutus. After World War I all the British race car drivers in Brooklands needed was power. Some of them mounted aircraft engines on a strong chassis for the racings. The Brutus is based on this idea. A 12 cylinder BMW aircraft engine from WW I was mounted on a chassis from 1907. The engine has a cubic capacity of 47 liters and a max. of 750 hp! Every 2nd weekend in May you can see the Brutus live in the Technikmuseum Speyer.
