oh the potential

The Corvette GTP could have been one of the most successful GTP cars of the period had it not been for unreliability and sheer bad luck. I also have the book "Inside IMSA's legendary GTP race cars"...

Some VW vans do still use the 5 cylinder diesel. Like the Crafter for example. Thanks to the way vans are always driven, it's actually easy to tell how many cylinders they have. I've heard the I5 TDI...

Do you think that VAG produces just too many engines? Let's just run through them all.

There is: I4s: 1.2 turbo petrol, 1.4 NA petrol, 1.4 turbo petrol, 1.4 turbo and supercharged petrol, 1.8...

Personally I'd have the Audi RS3 for the all round pace, usability and quality. However, I don't actually like the car very much because it weighs about 1600kg or something ridiculous like that. I'm...

He's 48 years old now, he must grow up and stop driving around in a pseudo rally car. The reason he sticks to it is becasue he wants something fast 4wd and cheap. You probably won't be able to find...

To answer the question: It's probably because V12s are very expensive and complex to develop. Also, the Viper was always known for having a massive, lazy, torque laden V10. The 8.3 V10 behaved in the...

I interpreted the thread title a bit differently. I thought it meant ROAD car engine. So in that case, Lexus LFA's V10 or Ferrari 458's V8. Both of which will rev to 9500 give or take while meeting...

I thought I may have read somewhere in the past that the peugeot 90X will have a 3.0 Twin turbo V6 petrol. However this must be wrong because the rules don't allow that. Ah well, only 1 day to wait...

The Shadow with the turbo Chevy V8 produced about 1200bhp but I'm not sure if that's in race or qualy trim. It would seem logical that a twin turbo 7600cc V8 would have more power than a 5400cc twin...
