That looks like one of Briggs Cunningham's many Cadillac and Chrysler powered Cunningham Specials.

A lot of the modern technology that we have has its roots from another time and era.

This question will have multiple parts.

Who was first with 4 valve cylinder heads?

Who did electronic fuel injection first?

Who was first with an automated manual transmission?

For the first one, was it Bugatti - in a car anyway ?

The others I have no idea.

Thats intriguing. I am avoiding google for the answer - that takes the fun away But If I'm wrong that makes it pre-WW1 ?

The earliest FI road car I know of is the Triumph PI system of the late 60s-early 70s but I'm thinking that can't have been the first - ther emust be a German or US one previously. Although knowing British Leyland why not blow your limited design budget on the "bleeding edge" instead of meaningfully developing the cars...

Auto Manual trans is more tricky.

Anyone any ideas on Larrybuck's fuel filler, is Model T correct ?

Nope, Triumph didn't do it first.

The answer will blow your mind though, it blew mine when I first found out about it.
