Colani C309: Pull-Push rotary engine fantasy.

Colani C309: Pull-Push rotary engine fantasy.

An awesome racer project -seen here as a scale model in its initial configuration- designed in 1968 by Luigi Colani. The pilot “enjoyed” a prone position seating, used a pair 230hp Mazda Walken…, well just take a look at the photo. Colani was as usual unusual. And this iteration of the C309 is quite conservative. In the later more evolved model Colani collaborated with the famous Hamilton Standard propeller company in the design of a new kind of propeller blade of a weirder shape.
