It has Detroit diesels in it. If it doesn’t it either soon will, or it’s already empty.

I had seen the video of when the engines were built and then tested on a dyno stand. Very impressive to say the least.

Calls to mind an old piece of wisdom, imparted to me by an old Marine helo crew chief. " If you look inside, and the flight deck ain't oily, don't get in, that bitch is out of oil and gonna crash soon."

Pretty sure the oil leaks disapear on all that chrome and polished aluminum. (works on Harley's and VW's)

I'd think it would have to have "Steer by wire" . To get a steering column from the cab to the wheels it'd have to have so many gears the backlash would never work. :-)

Lew it has the "Steer by others" system.
Nobody with that much spare cash would want to be in it when it crashed
