In August 1975, Mark Donohue lapped a specially prepared 917/30 around Alabama’s Talladega Superspeedway at an average speed of 355.78 km/h. This astonishing record run, one that also saw the fearless American reach a top speed of 382 km/h on the main straight, was abetted by charge-air intercoolers that saw 905 kW (1,230 hp) from the car’s 5.4-litre V12.
