    Best looking engines ever?

    Some automakers have made engines that are works of art.

    Here are a few off the top of my head.

    Ford's Yamaha-designed 3.0/3.2L V6 in the 89-95 Taurus SHO. 12 intake runners, two for each cylinder. One for low rpm torque, the other for high rpm airflow!


    1990-95 Corvette ZR-1 LT5.


    426 hemi. The orange paint and that huge polished air cleaner..... beautiful.


    1992-99 Mercedes Benz 6.0 V-12.


    The original Q45 infiniti had a unique intake manifold that made it look as though the engine was mounted transversely, not longitudinal.


    Honda's S2000 looks F1 derived.

    I've always been an admirer of the look of the SHO engine. Too bad it lives in a Taurus.

    I no it's not Modern, but I always fancied a dual quad 409.

    Also the Jag inline six is a thing of beauty:

    Top fuel hemi, such a menacing looking piece of hardware:

    As for stuff us mere mortals with $20,000 can afford, the 03-04 Mustang Cobra engine looks pretty darn mean with that huge blower sitting in the valley:

    Not stock lol:
