Ah....thats what I get for not reading the page That would be interesting.
Edit.....nevermind, I just read the page. $27,000 for a motor? I would rather put $10,000 into an SD-4.

I read that that engine is intended for use in the Ariel Atom?

Hearing that thing rev up would turn me on.

I almost bought a car several years ago that had a 2.5L V8 Hemi. It was an English sports car from the 60s. The number of cylinders doesn't always equal big displacement. I had a V12 Jag that was only 5.3L.

That would have been the Daimler SP250. Saw one at a Car Show a few weeks back.
Kind cool. http://auto.howstuffworks.com/daimler-sp-250.htm

That's the one! Daimler SP250 Dart. Tiny V8 Hemi and a totally fiberglass body. And I thought Corvette was the only one doing that back then.

True. But I'm sure Ferrari frowns on owners working on their own cars.

The last time someone tried to install 2 hayabusa engines in the back of a fiero, his garage burned to the ground along with some very cool/expensive toys... I wouldn't temp fate.

And the fact that "most" Ferrari owners could not locate the oil filter to begin with; even when it is staring them in the face

The Atom 500 V8 is a totally custom job specifically for Ariel, and is 2.4l. So, even smaller.

Though a 2.8l V8 isn't really a big surprise. The Indy/CART V8s are 3.0l.

And then there are things like this:

The motor in question is essentially a clone of the original Radical V8, which is exactly what it all sounds like - two Hayabusa 1300s stuck together. In either event they sound like a swarm of really angry bees at speed and make huge power for the tiny size. I could rock that quite happily... but preferably in a real Radical SR8.
