What a fascinating quarter of an hour. Now that's good car TV..

Have to say Bruce Wood has a great taste in shirts, too.

Nice one, Howard.

My guess is that will not be the sound you hear when the full car is engineered.

We know that cars can now have their own sound track so how would you like it to sound.

Maybe customers will be able to choose their own engine sound track.

So as a bit of consumer research for Adrian Newey, what would you like your Valkyrie to sound like?

I'd just like the 3 cylinder motor at 250 bhp a 4/3 Mog!
What if they did a turbo supercharge version like VW do

I would imagine the likely cost of this thing they would make an exhaust to sound exactly as Sir wished for.

Pistonheads had a review of the engine, from the article -

β€œDirect injection definitely gives you an edge for economy, which is why so many people use it," Wood explains, "but that wasn't really the priority here, and if you want power rather than economy port injection is slightly better, and it also meant we didn't need a GPF."

Interesting comment, so bring back old fashioned squirters and do away with power sapping GPFs and their weight.
