Blowing (up) Ducatis

While Franco Lambertini at Morini had a turbocharged V-twin ready to roll, a few miles across town at Ducati Fabio Taglioni was experimenting with both turbo and supercharging. This is a 350 Pantah motor fitted with a supercharger in 1980. The turbo version is rumoured to have spectacularly self-destructed during bench testing when the waste-gate stuck open. Another photo by Phil Aynsley taken in the experimental and race department, just off the main factory and these days strictly out of bounds.
