In 200 words or more, please describe the advantages of both the pushrod V8 and the rotary engine.

And that white is sexy, the perfect balance of pearlescence.

Maserati also has a very good white, quite similar to the Lambo with a touch less pearl.

Well..... personaly I think rotarys don't have any significant advantage other than the HP/Per Litre is pretty impressive... but when it comes down to it, HP/L doesn't really matter.

It sounds gross, burns oil by design, bad MPG and has no torque.

Good call on the hp/L, the advantages of a rotary engine are it's compact size and light weight. A 2-rotor engine weighs 100+ less than most 4-cylinders while being <2/3 the overall size.

What about pushrod engines?

Simple design, more max hp/torque available even when naturaly aspired. Pushrods are usualy smaller or more compressed than an overhead cam engine of the same displacement. beer.gif

Whats the point of this? I've been posting in forums for a number of years.
