Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, powered by the DB 603 aero engine and developing 3,000 hp: The T 80 was to become the world’s fastest car on four wheels and reach a speed of 373 mph on the motorway near Dessau in early 1940. However, the outbreak of World War II prevented the car from being completed, and the T 80 never hit the road.
