    As a matter of fact, in the late 1940's and early 1950's two of the most hotly contested GT classes were for 1.5L and 2.0L cars. The early Porsches from this period were also very small displacement.

    Ferrari also managed to produce a 1.5 liter V12 for that class. Which, in addition to the performance, is a triumph of precision machining.

    50 years later, even with a CNC milling machine, it would still be difficult to create such an engine
