    I like it, it's old school: 2,200 lbs, 650 hp, no turbos, 12,100 redline, H-pattern gearbox, sucker fan for downforce

    650hp from a 4 liter V12.

    That's a 2 liter, naturally aspirated, inline 6, making 325 hp. <bonkers> Is this thing going to be street legal? The S2000 made 240 hp from 2 liters and was famed for being the highest horsepower per NA displacement, and this is going to make more?

    Well, even as advanced as the S2k's engine was, now 20 years on, engine management tech has to have evolved quite a bit. Metalurugical tech too, I would imagine. Still you're right, that's still really impressive.

    The RPM likely has a lot to do with it. 12k is astronomical. I wonder what the powerband and torque curves are like. With a 6-speed transmission, it'll be interesting to see what lower RPM performance is like. ~11k of useable rev range is quite a lot.

    I see it's a Cosworth V12. Aren't they also doing the AM Valkyrie engine, which is also a very high revving medium-size engine?

    Cuda, you are correct. Cosworth is doing the engine for the Valkyrie also

    Wow! Taking the McLaren F1 to another level! Should be called the F0!!! Wonder why it's called T.50? 50 for anniversary, but what's the T?
