i was wondering the same. as i didn't see any type of ignition system. maybe a diesel type motor fires from compression?

i will say this, the guy is one hell of a machinist! imagine what he could do if he decided to make a firearm or parts! i watched the whole thing, and i was impressed with his skills in making such small precision engine parts.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT!

It reminded me of my father, although he wasn't a watchmaker and never worked on anything that small. I would have liked to see how he machined the combustion chambers. (Has he made the rest of the Lamborghini? )

It runs on compressed air. That's common with miniatures like these.
