    ITB's and standoff injectors.

    I reckon apart from the displacement and cylinder configuration, there wouldn't be much in common in this DTM engine with what the engineers initially intended for that 2.5 V6.

    Same thing with what BMW did with this and last season's M3 DTM. 4.0 litre capacity , same as the roadcar, but completely different otherwise.

    They try to keep the engines similar in configuration and displacement because - " What wins on Sunday, sells on Monday". ;)

    The mass of this engine sits ahead of the front axle, which I have never seen before.

    The FIAT group isn't exactly known for following run-of-the-mill ideas. Ha! :D

    Interesting approach for sure. In the Japanese domestic racing series (whatever it is named), the engineers removed the bulky 2JZ engine from the Supra and installed an inline 4 so as to take the weight off the front axle and move it as far back as possible.

    What bike is that with the Rajdoot 350?

    2013 marks 41 years since the original RD350 design was unleashed and it still turns heads. Well atleast it does mine.
