What are the clear-ish lines going to the intake in that pic? Are those fuel lines?
Yes these are the fuel injector pipes on the Magnesium intake. Can be found also on some Ferrari and other cars.
Here is the story
Note the position of what I see as the turbos and how low is that power unit to the ground!!
So with the upcoming Group C!
Thanks to Peter Sauber after his previous versions in /1985/1986 C8's. Mercedes upped their involvement in 1988 to full factory backing. This paid off immediately as a Sauber Mercedes C9 was driven to victory in the Jerez 800 km, one lap clear of the dominant Jaguars. That year's Le Mans was an even bigger disappointment than the previous editions with both C9s forced to be withdrawn before the start. The combination of higher speeds and higher downforce had increased the loads on the tires too much, causing the rear tires to burst on one of the C9s at very high speed during qualifying. Starting the race was considered too dangerous.
***** Turbo position also heat, perhaps? Looks like turbo cooling vents on No 2 car
For 1989 Mercedes-Benz provided a completely new development of the alloy V8 engine, known as the M119. The biggest change was a full four valve head with double overhead camshafts. This bumped the power to 720 bhp and 810 Nm in race spec. The new quad-cam V8 engine was fitted to the proven C9 chassis. The Germans' involvement in the Sauber program was visibly increased as the cars were now painted silver; a clear drawback to the successful Silver Arrows of years past.
For the fifth Sauber Mercedes attempt, the team again fielded two cars. All of the four difficult previous editions were quickly forgotten as the two cars were placed first and second on the grid. After a trouble free race, the two cars crossed the line in the opposite order, clinching a convincing one-two victory. The winning C9 was driven by Jochen Mass, Manuel Reuter and Stanley ****ens. The team kept the Le Mans winning form for that season's World Championship and with seven wins out of eight races, they were crowned World Champions at the end of the season.
720 -800 bhp Whats not to like!
No wizardry electronics. Twin KKK turbos and music that the motor and blowers produce.
If you've got a few quid lying around
G40 Cup | Ginetta Racing Championships | Ginetta
G40 GT5 | Ginetta | Ginetta
Why not treat yourself?
Same kind of money and a Maser fan Id go for.
£35,950 inc vat!
Mmm sry John, not enough beans for the buck, Id'd prefere the Ferrari powered
This is a very interesting series of 7 videos about someone who started racing with the Ginetta G40 :

Thanks for post.
Lol at second vid.
I hate people who drive and look at passenger while talking in this case camera. One should always look where their going Expensive error.
Its here at last Gordon Murray's wonderful Brabham fan car.
The car was has been wrongly described as banned. It was in fact never banned just withdrawn, mainly due to Bernie Ecclestones future financial interest
The Great Nicki Lauda in a 46 at Monaco, though driving there must have required some very special skills. For the 46b the extra downforce from the fan is best experienced at faster tracks with plenty of full throttle corners, being enginedriven. lack of high revs when cornering results in little downforce and the car is counterintuitive to drive.

With it engine driven fan that would visibly suck the car down to the ground whilst revving the engine and car stationary in the pits.
Take an Alfa Romero flat 12 engine that revs like a chainsaw, 6 speed box, etc and the Lotus 'black beauty' has some stiff competition with its skirts giving downforce.
Theres no stopping Gordan Murray he's just launched the Nicki Lauda 2021 fan 'track day' car
This popped up in my Youtube feed, thought it would fit nicely here
After the vacuum cleaner mybe a car the way around:
