Anyone in possession of this book: could you check out if the book mentions a Napier Sabre test run at 3750 hp? I remember readiung this book years ago in a library mentioning such a test, but the book is no longer available at that library.

You may want to contact the Napier Power Heritage. The new book by Alan Vessey quotes the highest rating for a production Sabre as 3,050hp for a VIIA. However this is the power rating for its type test. Undoubtedly, far higher power was extracted during testing; this was typical for any manufacturer so 3750 is not out of the realm of possibility.

Graham, I think I once contacted them and the info I received was very vague at best. By the way, a late 1940s Jane´s AWA gives 3055 hp as Sabre VII´s combat (5 min) rating.
