Last week we brought to you a collection of the best onboards from the 2019 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard. All of them were glorious, but there was one car in particular that had us skipping back through the video to watch again and again: the Minardi 191B.
Video: Onboard the screaming Lamborghini‑engined Minardi 191B F1 car!
The 191B was not the most successful F1 car of its day, nor did it live a particularly long life. Raced in the 1992 season by Christian Fittipaldi and Gianni Morbidelli, it was an updated Minardi 191 chassis without the outgoing car's Ferrari engine. Out of the four races in which it was entered it finished just two. This particular car, chassis #003, peaked with a P11 finish in Spain, while Morbidelli’s sister car managed seventh at the Brazilian Grand Prix four weeks earlier. However, you should know the 191B was fitted with a 700 horsepower Lamborghini V12 engine, the LE3512. Consequently it sounds utterly wonderful. It even has a six-speed manual gearbox! So, really, who cares if it wasn’t a race winner?
