Impressive images reveal an ultrathin motorcycle driven by a roaring AIRCRAFT engine from the 60s

A former Formula One driver has designed a new, ultra-thin motorcycle, known as the TMC Dumont, powered by a 300-horsepower Rolls-Royce Continental V6 engine.

The futuristic ride has wheels without a 36-inch hub: "the biggest wheels ever made for a motorcycle", according to the Brazilian creator Tarso Marques.

The wheels are fixed to the base of the tire giving the motorcycle the appearance that it is "floating" on the road.

Creator Tarso Marques said he has been dreaming of design for 15 years, describing it as the "most expressive personalization event in the world."

The motorcycle was built for the 77th rally event of the Daytona Beach Bike Week in Florida, where it received the title of "Best in Show". at the beginning of this year.

All aspects of the TMC Dumont were developed and manufactured in Brazil, from the design of the chassis to the color and paint of the frame.

Describing his creation as "the most expressive personalization event in the world," Marques described the motorcycle as the culmination of years of planning.

"It's a special project that I've been dreaming about for at least 15 years, I did not develop it before because it was very difficult to do without the technological assistance of external partners," said Marques.

"And I wanted it to be a 100 percent Brazilian project, without any foreign supplier."

The huge, cubeless wheels are designed to invoke the observer's biggest reaction, Marques said.

"It is practically impossible to remain indifferent or not to be impacted by the design and form in front of you," he said.

The wheels, which have no central hub or spokes, are fixed to the lower section of the rim.

This gives the impression that the vehicle is "floating" on the road, says the designer.

Marques even manufactured the tires himself, ensuring that the entire project was custom designed.

The former Formula One driver has not revealed the total cost of the motorcycle or its maximum speed.

TMC DUMONT: WHAT ARE THE MAIN FACTS?

The DMCont DMCont works with a Rolls-Royce engine from the 1960s, which has been restored to previous glory.

Before being incorporated into a futuristic motorcycle, it is likely that the vintage engine has small aircraft, such as the Cessna.

The TMC Dumont is named in honor of the Brazilian inventor and pioneer of aviation Alberto Santos Dumont.

Few details of the bicycle concept exist, but what is known is the gross engine power and wheel design without hub or spoke.

The amazing journey has a 300-horsepower vintage Rolls-Royce airplane engine from a 1960s aircraft, most likely a Cessna or something of a similar size

The ultra-thin motorcycle is made of a combination of carbon fiber, chrome and metal alloys.

To make the TMC Dumont, the designers used a variety of methods, including high performance Romi machining center machines, Laser Mark and Halter cutting machines, Faro Technology laser scanners and Wishbox 3D printers.

The chassis is made of chrome and molybdenum aluminum to provide the necessary strength to support the weight of the huge engine.

The bicycle comes equipped with a speedometer, retractable lighting, a four-gallon aluminum fuel tank (16 liters) and a two-liter (eight-liter) oil tank.

Wheel size: Diameter of 36 inches

Engine manufacturer: Rolls Royce

Engine model: Six-floor continental

Engine power: 300 horsepower (224 kW)

Official reveal: 77th Daytona Bicycle Week

The engine was rescued from an air club in Paraná and required a complete restoration.

The name TMC Dumont is a tribute to the Brazilian inventor and pioneer of aviation Alberto Santos Dumont.

"We had to open the entire engine and practically redo it, from refrigeration, the fuel pump to the machining of some specific parts," he said.

Marques enjoyed the idea that the bicycle is so extravagant that people might not believe that it could run.

"The idea was to make everyone doubt that it was a standard bike, but a prototype," said Marques.

& # 39; And we really accomplished that. However, one of the rules for participating in the personalization event (Daytona Bike Week 2018) is that the bicycle must run and function normally.

To everyone's surprise, I set out to get to the event by driving TMC Dumont.

"And it was very rewarding and fun to see the reaction of the people," he said.
