Fresh out of an M60 Patton tank, an air cooled, 11 litre, 90 degree, twin turbo diesel V12: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...ADME:B:SS:US:1123&viewitem=&item=270218586883

A bit heavy at 4700 lbs (the car chassis might need some additional bracing), and somewhat large at 8' x 8' (think there will be bonnet clearance problems?) According to its Wiki listing here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continental_AV1790 it makes 643 BHP @ 2400 RPM. Think a set of cams would really wake this puppy up....

One guy did actually put a similar tank motor in a car, and it's called the Blastolene Special: http://www.blastolene.com/The_Special/index.htm. TV personality Jay Leno now owns it.
haha its only 5.60$ right now.

it looks like it could be made considerably smaller by moving the intercoolers and turbo off the motor.
Try it again...

I have seen the seller on a car show or 2 on the Speed Channel.
Very famous for his flame based paint schemes.

that thing is cool!!
I've driven the BMW V12 and was not that impressed. I have a MB SL600 which has a 6.0 liter V12 and much prefer it. The factory says just under 400 HP and its smooth and fast in a heavier car (?).
