Thinking Big: The Wartsila-Sulzer RTA-96C

From the folks at Wartsila in Sweden comes the RTA-96C for marine service.

Some interesting specifications: each cylinder displaces 1,820 liters and can produce 7,780 hp. The big fella is available in up to fourteen cylinders. delivering 108,920 shp at 102 rpm. If that isn't enough overkill, this gets done at a SFC of .278-economy to spare.

A straight-14? Outrageous! I want one!
