VERY Serious Mechanical Symphony UBERCandidate (CarScoop)

Cummins' 95-Liter 16-Cylinder Diesel with More than 4,000HP Coming to Goodwood

It is without question the largest and most powerful engine to ever be displayed at theGoodwood Festival of Speed in the UK. However, it will never be used on cars but on special equipment such as mining haul trucks with a capacity of over 400 tonnes and some of the world's largest rail locomotives.

We're talking about Cummins' brand new QSK95Diesel engine, also known by its code name "Hedgehog". In its...base form, the gargantuan diesel unit has 16-cylinders and a displacement of 95-liters that deliver over 4,000-horses and more than 16,000Nm (11,799 lb-ft) of torque.
