Nice V12 engine

I came across this little V12 lump. Will it fit it in an E-type? :thinking: :thinking:

I think ground clearance may be an issue…….

It can be made to fit in a car, but you can get in trouble if you call it a Rolls Royce.

Jay Leno says it has 1700 ft.-lb. of torque.

In that case RR was upset with the grille, not the engine.

Jay also said that the non-supercharged version of the Merlin, called the Meteor, was arguably better for automotive use. The supercharger was primarily intended for use at altitude. Besides that, the Meteor has valve stem seals while the Merlin does not; when powering a tank, you don’t want your location to be given away by a whisp of smoke in the exhaust.
