As it turned out, the NSU brass cared enough to send their very best. A full factory effort came to Bonneville in the summer of '56, including the 500cc twin-cam supercharged streamliner that took Wilhelm Herz to 210.77 mph. Nobody told the Germans not to mess with Texas. Not even in Utah. Mangham, Wilson and Allen returned to the salt flats that fall, Wilson's more potent T-Bird twin now using, among other things, rod bearings from a Cadillac V-8. The so-called Texas Cee-gar was designed to (sorry) smoke Wilhelm's record without a supercharger, and that's exactly what it did, going 214.17 mph on September 6, 1956. The FIM wouldn't ratify that one either, but a certain Edward Turner-father of the Ariel Square Four and the Triumph Speed Twin-did a good bit more, bestowing the name that has become synonymous with speed on the twin-carb T120 Triumph rolled out at the 1958 Earl's Court Motorcycle Show: Bonneville.
