As a petrol head these engines would not sound right I like the sound of a v8 engine even v10/v12 and also it would cost an lot of money redesigning the cars to take this engine there for the costs will go up

quite some time ago, at least 6/12 months, there was a thread regarding what posters would like to see regarding engines etc. i said in my post that i would like to see a natural gas fed static turbine driving a generator which in turn would supply current to electric motors place at each wheel.
this would effectively be able to incorporate four wheel drive which would inturn be far safer than current drive systems. who knows, maybe something like will eventuate. just an idea that could revolutionise the sport.
pgj I suppose that all turbine cars could be fitted with a sound system to broadcast the sound of a V8/10/12. lol
I can tell you that my company was approached by a certain German car manufacturer to make a car sound generator for electric car. Basically, you would be able to choose the engine sound to your preference. And it would be synchronized with the actual acceleration.
