Big cars have rear-wheel drive. That's the rule. Or it was until General Motors launched the Oldsmobile Toronado in 1966. This elephantine coupe had a lunking great V8 engine sitting over the front wheels which, at its 1970 peak, was 7.5 litres in size and kicked out 276kW, or 294kW with an option pack. However, that was 'gross' power, not 'net'.
