Normally SIZE and WEIGHT has been the enemy of converting a Murena (or any other car for that matter) to more than a 4-pot engine.
The Alfa V6 is a very tight squeeze, and this is also why some consider the VW VR6 as the only real candidate if any space should be left free.

However, now there is another - and this is even a V12 ! :

Alright,  its until now only powered by compressed air, but that's environmentally friendly too, ...


any takers ?    :-)

What a nice idea! You could put it into the centre console...

Heh - I thought this guy was the only one to have built a miniature V12 from scratch :

I like the idea of the V12 in the centre console, - freeing up space for luggage ... or even back-seat ? :-)

I *love* the sound even these miniature V12's make.
