w0w. I'd take the Italian-built "Subaru" F1 H12 motor, though.

H 16

For 1966, the engine regulations changed to 3.0 litre unsupercharged (or 1.5 litre supercharged) engines. BRM refused Aubrey Woods' proposal to build a V12, and instead built a strange engine H 16 (BRM 75), which used two flat-8 engines one above the other, with the crankshafts geared together. This engine was powerful but heavy and unreliable, had low torque and a high centre of gravity. The reason for the choice of this design remains obscure but it is probable that BRM found the H 16 attractive because it shared some parts with the 1.5 litre V8. Jackie Stewart (who drove for BRM in this period) is believed to have said "This piece of metal is better used as a ship's anchor than as a power plant". At that time BRM earned the nickname of "British Racing Misery". However, Lotus had been using the BRM 1.5 V8, and along with others, had used the engines stretched to 2.0 litre form for some races during 1966, as competitive 3.0 engines were in short supply in this first year of the new regulations. Lotus took up the H16, building the Lotus 43 to house it, and Jim Clark managed to win the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen with this combination. It was the only victory for this engine in a World Championship race.
