    We're all in the wrong century - Zora Arkus Duntov designs this conversion - then goes on to be a major influencer with GM for Corvette development and later wringing so much power out of the small block. The only equivalent 'influencer' we had here in the UK was Edward Turner with the Triumph bike engine and later the Daimler V8. Kinda pales in to insignificance doesn't it? - mind you UKplc was skint following WW2.

    What a great story - Ardun has always been the stuff of legend! Edward Turner apparently 'borrowed' his hemi head design used in both the 1936 Triumph Twin and post war Daimler engine from the very advanced 1926 Riley 9 designed by Percy Riley. I guess we've also had types like Harry Weslake, John Cooper, Colin Chapman and the Cosworth company who started small, but eventually influenced the main stream with BMC, Ford and even Mercedes Benz.
