RIGHT ENGINE, WRONG CAR
Previous | 12 | Next

I love the AMG63 engine, but can't help but wonder what it would be like in a M3 rather than a C63. Would it make the M3 awesome?

Any others like that? After reading about the Huayra, I really wonder if the Zonda 760 engine would be more EVO.

The Aston Martin engine is just two Cougar engines sticky taped together rar rar grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. :D

Ignoring your watch seeking question, the RX8 seems to have been very much a case of right car, wrong engine.

RX8 and a S2000, both great cars but know that the engines were barely adequate.
(watch seeking? am happy to be accused because my question is genuine)

Ill agree with the Rx8 but not the S2000 - i love the idea of 9500 rpm. Fair enough it could have done with a bit more power. However having never driven one i cant say how it feels. Owners rate them highly.

GT86. Needs an LS7.

I've no issues with the C63 engine in various mercs, but wish there was a manuel option. Same comment for the XKR/XKR-S/XFR/XFR-S/KLF.

The 1.0T Engine should right now be in a Ka, with 130bhp+ on tap and stealing a huge clump of the market.

Yes, although that is probably (c) David Exiges Brown. ;)

David was looking at an A340 as his private jet recently, but he's insisted they test one with the A380 engines... :?

I'll give you the RX8 but what a load of garbage with regards to the S2000. The F20C is a phenomenal engine, it still astounds me that that 13 years ago Honda squeezed 236bhp out of an N/A 2.0 4 pot and made it utterly reliable and reasonably efficient as well. Even by todays the standards it's still a mightily impressive engine.

Stolen Orions on fire off the hard shoulder of the M8. I watched neds litter in the dark near the Tennents shop. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears... in... rain. Time... to die...

Couldn't that A340 run on two 380 engines instead?

Why would you want a Spanish bloke fiddling with your gear stick Mik?

He hasn't been olé-d in a while.

What's the difference between a BMW and a hedgehog?

4.9L flat 12 in the Testarossa (first generation, without cat).
You'd never believe this engine has only 390hp (even more so if you compare with the claimed 400hp of a 360 Modena); for the rest and apart from the dramatic look the Testarossa is total crap :lol:

Mercedes' 250 CDI lump in the SLK - 369lb ft of torque should work well in a two-seat roadster. But thanks to its embarrassing 'soundtrack' just doesn't.

and why did they never put the 420CDI engine in the CL. That would have made a good grand tourer

M3 != awesome :?::roll:
