The Honey­well Dual­boost turbo sucks big time

Honey­well con­vinc­ingly proved its in­no­va­tion un­der the en­gine cover of Porsche’s 919 racer. Not only does the petrol V4 pro­duce up to 530kw from just two litres, the pro­to­type racer de­mol­ished the com­pe­ti­tion at the 2017 24 hours of Le Mans, and later went on to oblit­er­ate the out­right lap record at the hal­lowed Nur­bur­gring. The new time stands at a mind­blow­ing 5:19.545, top­pling a pre­vi­ous record that had stood for 35 years.
