F1 cars are the pinnacle of engine tech when it comes to internal combustion engines.

These things rev so hard that they use air springs to open and close the valves, as metal ones simply can't take the stresses involved.

The vid shows the sound and fury of one of these jewellike motors. Play it with the sound on, try to imagine those pistons racing up and down at unimaginable speeds.

The heat and blue flame are pretty cool, too. No wonder airflow is so imnportant to these beasts.
