Wow. The info on the website says it has a custom straight 8 that's only 22" long.

Quote:
....For the power train, Mr. Brauks made custom foundry patterns, cast the parts blanks and then machined the one-off straight eight L-head 115 CID 65 HP motor and three speed manual transmission. The crankshaft features a dual 90 degree offset design. Many of the ancillary motor parts are also handmade. The intake and exhaust manifolds are custom fabricated from welded tubing. The cast iron 8 cylinder head is only 22" in length.....

That is one cool looking car! It reminds me of the car the circus clowns used to jump out of, all 25 of them..
That would be a unique car to build, I've never seen one before this.
