Italian styling + amerikan powerplants...

  1. And what is the clean-sheet design that you know that doesn't borrow something from older designs?
     
  2. that although they use the same design, which is heavily reworked with each model, they don't just take one engine and make it a slut by selling it to other companies to put in thier cars that they dont want to build an engine for themselves
     
  3. I havent read all this thread but I hope you guys are talking about the Murcielago's engine because the Gallardo's engine is pure german. Audi design & Audi made. The engine is only assembled at the Lambo plant.

     
  4. Supposedly every company just forgets everything they learn in the past and starts from scratch every few years. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/disappointed.gif"></A>
     
  5. That's what I'm trying to say. Because some people are saying that the Lambo V12 in the Murcie wasn't an engine purposefully built for it just because it has some similarities with older lambo engines. Hence I said that if we look into this perspective there's basically no new engine on the market, because the ones we have are evolutions of prior designs.
     
  6. It's like saying people evolved from apes. I AIN'T A DANG MONKEY!!

  11. Haha. Yeah.
     
  12. Italian cars should have high revving engines. Other than that anything goes.

    I do not know much about engines, but I'm wondering, what does it take to make a car rev more, and how will that affect it?
     
  13. All kinds of things can help an engine rev higher, and it can have various effects depending on what particular parts were changed.

    For instance the cams can effectively limit how high an engine can rev because it will start to lose power and basically choke if it goes past a certain RPM. Then there's limits in how fast the valves themselves can actually open and close to get the gas in and out. And on and on. Basically though the higher an engine revvs, the lower the power at low RPMs. That's one thing that generally stays true, although not to the extent it used to with VVT being used on so many engines now.
