Thanks, Derek. If you think that looks like a Harley Davidson engine you wouldn't be far wrong. In fact, though, it's an S. & S. engine made by a small specialist company in Wisconsin, USA. They do supply high-performance V-twin engines to HD though. The angle of the push-rods is apparently 56 degrees, making them known as 'X - engines', whereas HD engines are only 45 degrees. (I'm no engineer, so don't take this as gospel. Got this from browsing Internet).

Best wishes, Brian.

Thanks again, Dietmar! You could order one - but you would be well into your sixties before it arrived! Worth waiting for though!

Best wishes, Brian.

Hello, Roberto. Gorgeous, isn't it! I don't know of any other car with the engine exposed like this!

Best wishes, Brian.
