Default Twin engined Ultima





http://www.zcars.org.uk/ultima/ultima-background.htm

The Ultima weighs 990 kilos with power at 640 bhp giving a power to weight ratio of 646 bhp per tonne

Our twin engined car weighs 980 kilos fully built with all fuel water etc on board, the engines give 1000 bhp which equates to a power to weight ratio of 1020 bhp per tonne

This has to be the most powerful road going car in the world plus it has the traction to put this sort of power down to the ground

SPECS:
Ultima sports with half a tank of fuel fully trimmed for road use with all other fluids ready to drive

Powered by two turbo charged Hyabusa engines giving 1000 bhp
Weight 980 kilos
Front axle 480 kilos
Rear axle 500 kilos
Power to weight ratio 1020 bhp /tonne
Four wheel drive
Performance figures yet to be confirmed but expect record breaking results in every respect

Damm, that would give the Tomahawk motorcyle with the viper engine a run for its money.

it's not so much that 2 small engines are intrinsically better, it's that 2 small engines with rediculously high specific output are better than one bigger engine with lower specific output. A turbocharged 1300cc bike engine has got to have about as much hp/liter as you can get... I mean, 500hp/1.3L= 385 hp/L... a 500hp viper v10 for example, 500ci=8.1L, so 500hp/8.1L= only 62hp/L.

It is cool and all, but it seems you could do the same thing with twin turbo V8. Didn't Callaway make engines this powerful? The twin Haybusa motors must be lighter.
I wonder what the life span of 500hp motorcycle engine is.





I am such a wet blanket today.

Read the rest of the article.

The engines are mounted opposite. One drives the front, one drives the rear.

Uhm, duh. The two motors are less weight than one of the V8's they put in those. And asking what the life span of a 500hp motorcycle engine is like asking what the lifespan of a Formula 1 engine is. They are very similar in many regards.

Yea, 'cause that's what he meant with the two shafted tranny comment.

I forgive you though. You are just too caught up in the technical wonderment to be dragged down by gutter humor.

For sure.

And that I tend to supress my OT mentality for fear that it bleeds into my every day life.
