Think the owner said 500 hp at 375 rpm. Versions from ww2 doubled in hp and rpm. This is from 1935

Engines of that size are started with compressed air let into the cylinders through a special valve in the heads. Once the engine is rolling, then the fuel is turned on. As soon as the engine begins to fire, the compressed air is shut off and normal operation occurs. This is very effective due to the additional heat the compressed air generates under compression.
