I don't think that engine is amazin 0.655 liters produces 270hp (correct me if I'm wrong, but numbers are pretty close)
How lond engine like that gonna live, also I heard it is a bitch to fix rotary engines.

Look at the specs below. Not entirely impressed.. Pickup speed won't be nearly as good as BMW. My 325i 2002 will do 181 lb.-ft at 3500rpm.

-------------
The final result is that the new engine contributes to the high maximum output of 264-horsepower at 8,500rpm and a maximum torque of 160 lb.-ft at 7,500rpm even with natural aspiration.

They're not that bad (the motors) I've wrenched on a few...the power band is really linear (no pistons) and with a turbo they fly!!

OH and if your psycho you can just add more rotories like lego blocks, I think I read somewhere about a 7 rotor boat that had like 6500hp....

they have lots of vacuum lines...thats the only thing I don't like about them....oh and they get shitty gas milage.

the new ones should be better...all
