And now for something completely different

Guys and girls;

See this - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hereford-worcester-12608039 - shame that they didn't use the Morini engine. Perhaps some-one should tell them it's available... :wink:

Or, as the Morini engine is a fore-and-aft layout, how about a recreation of John Bolster's Bloody Mary, in which he stuck four Jap v-twins. By the time he'd developed the car this far, I think even he was getting a bit scared...

I'm sure EVGuru could craft something suitable?

There would be no problem mounting a Vee twin in front with a coupling in place of the gearbox sprocket to drive the rear wheels, plenty of bike engine kit kars do this, or do as Triking do with a Guzzi power unit driving the back wheel.
The problem comes when you want to sell to modern drivers who want the luxury of a reverse gear, hence the use of a car gearbox :roll: in place of a nice sequential bike box :(
