That is an impressive V12 engine, although 'awesome' might be better used to describe the microscopic Stirling Engine described in this article:

Edit: I just noticed as I was posting this comment that the OP is poshgeordie. Nick, good to hear from you and I hope you are well. :)

Nice one Killer!

Good to hear from you too - I'm living in "interesting times" as they say.

Hope you're OK too.

I remember coming upon that one a few years ago and being astonished with how similar the sound signature is to a proper big V12. Very cool stuff!
