OK so it has too many cylinders, but a blown V12 in a Spitfire has to be considered a noble enterprise


And it has English steering, that's cool, right?

Some nutter want to finish it off?

I've seen that one for sale before, just can't remember where I saw it. Twin superchargers also. Interesting

I have the same problem Jim.
I've seen that car before somewhere....just can't quite remember where.
The engineering is very intriguing, the execution is up for debate.
But very good example of how to make a long engine even longer.
