Perhaps the ultimate in Naturally Aspirated engines. This masterpiece helped a certain car, called McLaren F1 I think, to be the fastest car on earth for more than a decade. A 6.1 L (6,064 cc) 60-degree V12 powerplant, with 627 PS (461 kW; 618 hp) and 266 kg (586 lb) the BMW engine ended up 14% more powerful and 16 kg (35 lb) heavier than Gordon Murray's original specifications, with the same block length. Truly for the gods as the entire engine bay is lined with gold for heat reflection.
