I'd love to see a Tuscan V12 pop up somewhere !

Before someone says something such as "its impossible".
The Tuscan has a 4L engine and can up to 4.5 thanks to Power.

Why not use a 5L V12 smile its small enough !

I've had the same dream!

The top half of two BMW K1600 bike engines with a slightly longer stroke gives 3.6L

5L V12 was only an idea. Ferrari V12 are about 5.5, Mercs are 6L or 6.5L if I'm not mistaking, those are just examples.
TVR.eu offers a 6.2L V8, I guess you could probably fit any V12 in it then.

I dont see the point..

The existing TVR engine develop plent of power vs weight and use of the cars.

The V12 engine - is generally far too big, many are not even as powerful as the standard TVR engines
and those that are bhp rich are far too big and heavy for a sports car engine.

OK - if you want a 'GT' for a homologation wide as a bedroom race car ..

but it's a dinosaur.

With the price of fuel - sports cars have to evolve or die.

Come on guys you need to think outside the box a bit more. There was a French guy that built a w12 using 3 1000cc cbr engines! He then went on to build a 2.0 ltr v16 (!!!!!) using 4 cdr 600 destroked to 500cc each.

So how about either a w12 using 3 hyabusa engine each stroked to 1500cc giving a total of 4.5 ltr or a v16 giving 6.0ltr??????

Google Callaway V16

Four bike engines in a V16 layout. This engine actually exists.

Reading this thread, I see I'm not the first person to see a BMW K1600 engine and think of a V12.

or drop a Cadilac Cien (concept car) engine in it, it uses a nice 7.5L V12 with 750 hp Northstar?

doesn't look to heavy, and looks a bit like the All Melling engine?

Good luck with finding the space for all of those main bearing caps, con-rod big ends, and counterweights. You'd end up with a hybrid of crankshaft/tardis.

its already been done! There is a french guy that races in Off Road event. he used to run a W12 setup using R1 engine and now runs a V16 using 4 destroked R6 units (down to 500CC each)!

As for sice the V8's out there that use the Hyabusa engines are VERY small, as in smaller than a 2.0 Zetec engine!

I'd be interested to find out how much space for counterweights and main bearings/caps you're left with, when trying to develop a 'Busa engine into a W configuration. Suspect Frenchie selected engines that had fair bore spacing.

That nay saying out of the way, I do love the RST V8.

Best,
B.

Here is a link to the W9 engine project. http://www.atomracing.se/6M.html

That uses a 90mm bore spacing

Did the alarm clock spoil that?

Nope. At the time my engine broke down, I thought about two options... BUt I was told even the other alternative (Chevy V8) wouldn't fit into the Tuscan chassis...

Pretty easy to understand I gave up looking into the S12 route as well, hearing that.

And yes, I made a wrong decision at the time listening to naysayers.
