DICKHORSE TIME TRAVEL
I am going to own this beautiful, elegant engine soon, and I lose sleep from the excitement and wonder.
It was designed by Nissan’s finest engineers after they kidnapped some Italian designers from Pininfarina. It’s inspired by the European supercars that came before, but incarnated in what was Japan’s newest technologies at the time, into a modern DOHC configuration with variable valve timing (with the geometry of each component’s shape evolved through thousands of generations of computer-simulated iterations, until then-unprecedented levels of efficiency were achieved), during a time when computer-aided design launched cars into a whole new generation and paradigm.
It’s a classic supercar dual-independent design, a V-engine that’s essentially two straight-engines with completely independent systems - two intakes into two manifolds through a common block, out the two headers into two exhaust systems, each side having its own turbo system with separate intercoolers, and it all comes down to torquing a common crankshaft. The results feel and sound utterly beautiful, and because of my long years of frugal saving into a terrible (see: buyer’s) economy, it will be mine, in just a few days.
