The 1912 Benz 82/200 had a 21.5L~21,500cc engine....sad thing is it's a four banger

what about the catallac 500 v8?


currently it would probably be Government motors 8.1L vortec, but way back in the day oldsmobile had made a engine that was over 700cubes it was also an inline engine

if you want to go that route then what about an engine from a rock pit truck?

if i remember right, the 8.1l vortec was to replace the chevy 454.


it was the benz, that thing was a freaking monster with pistons the size of coffee cans. I also think that it was one of the first cars to go over 100, but im not quite sure.


how could that benz engine fit?, oh yea the engine compartment was 8ft long right?

who are you trying to kid? that car is a little bigger then a motel t. they all used 4 bangers back then.

change motel t to auburn boattail

try the cat 797f


basically the engine compartment was the car. then you had a seat behind it

true, similar to an auburn,packard, or cord, but the cat 797f is a production dumptruck that makes any truck you see know look like a geo. they only use them in the big rock pits


well if we go off the topic of cars, hyundai makes an industrial cargo ship engine that you have to literally walk into in order to inspect each cylinder, (the pistons are as large as an suv)


largest current production car engine = the doge viper's 8.4L v10, proof that doge does not know how to tune engines because they have to use 8.4 L of displacement to make 632 hp.

that mite be close to the caddy 500 v8.

well he said production engine. what can i say?
