If you’ve been around cars long enough, you’ve surely noticed that engines have been getting smaller.
Cars that once came with 3.0L six-cylinder engines are being paired with 2.0L turbo-charged four cylinders, and those that originally came with 2.0L four-cylinders are now being given 1L three-cylinders.
One man however, took a far more interesting approach to engine-downsizing by building a miniature V8 engine. Based on a 1964 365hp Corvette motor, this mini-v8 is 1/6th the size of the original. This thing is seriously tiny – its connecting rods are barely larger than a quarter and its pistons are smaller than dimes. The whole thing took 6 years to build and actually sounds half decent.
