Never mind Paul Cains wimpy effort!

2735 bhp @ 2100rpm

48.7 litre

Weight 7550kg

And this is just their v12, the v16's got 3650bhp.

How about moving the driving position to underneath the bonnet, with a hood scoop to look out of, like a tank - and then see if the engine could be vaselined into the interior. That would leave space in the boot for fuel and a range of 'between petrol stations in a built up area'

I've seen comparable engines being built and in service. They are incredible to see. They machine the blocks with a mill that's half the size of my house. I've some friends who are engineers at a competitor to MTU, and they joke about having to design the wiring harnesses so technicians don't use them to climb the engine.

I've never seen a marine engine comparable in size, and it is gob smacking. But not quite as gob smacking as the freshly launched biggest private sailing yacht in the world. It sends shivers down your spine just looking at the thing, and I'm a land lubber.
