Very cool but the high rpm of a motorcycle engine would be a hoot. I agree this blue one would be more drivable

No! It sounds better than any F1 car. Since they went to the lower RPM turbo cars they sound like crap. Diesel trucks sound better.

i'm not sure what everyone's fascination with bike engines in cars is these days, the motorcycle tranny has got to hate it's life powershifting a car 5 times the weight of a bike and single passenger. most 4 cylinder bike engines also don't make a whole lot of torque and only really start generating anything above 6k RPMs. yeah they are different, but also impractical considering all the other choices one could have done.

the V6 turbo honda is cool, and it's correct wheel drive. to that one i give a thumbs up.
