Yeah, the V10s sounded incredible.  Do you recall the HP compared to the current turbo V6s?

Around 900 I think, so about the same as the combined gas and electric motors on current cars. The electric motors and turbo chargers give the new cars a lot more low end torque and HP than the old normally aspirated engines.

How about this one from 1953.
1.5L V16 600 HP. When it ran.
