Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

Fiat 500: Speed of Sunshine
The Fiat 500 has a long history spanning generations and spanning oceans.
One particular Fiat, a Fiat 500D, has made its way over the last 49 years
into the care of Annetta Calisi. After being attained in pieces, it was
meticulously restored daily over a period of four months. Annetta and her
Fiat, Luigi, could not be a better pair, and the lines between the past and
the present fade as they both dress the part for every tiny journey they

Fiat 500 with Subaru engine
This is a Fiat 500 modified by ZCars Ltd to the specification of a customer
from Greece. The design brief was to fix his 500 in an interesting way so
that it would have more useable power to enable him to drive his family
around town in comfort. Whilst he was tempted to have the Suzuki Hayabusa
conversion ZCars also produce he decided that he wanted to keep the rear
seats. As that is where the 200bhp motorcycle would be installed that
option was ruled out!
The engine is an EA81 Subaru engine (1800cc flat 4) which is quite an old
engine although still widely used as an aviation engine we are told. This
engine was used due to its simplicity, power and torque characteristics and
not least its size and shape. This was mated to the original gearbox with
clutch and drive shafts up rated. Also up-rated were the brakes with discs
all around and the suspension at the front. The transverse leaf spring was
removed and adjustable alloy dampers were used with coil springs. A new
front subframe was fitted to allow the use of wishbone suspension arms.
Obviously as it is a water cooled engine, radiators were required. This was
inserted into the front boot space (trunk) and water pipes run underneath
the car. A new stainless steel Exhaust
finished the conversion and new wheels and tyres were fitted as an optional
