Thank Frankel it's Friday: The greatest road car engines ever

I’ll start with a confession. I started this column about an hour ago and have just deleted everything I’ve written. It was going to be able the greatest racing engines of all time, passing by the Ferrari 3-litre flat-12, the BRM V16, Porsche flat-eight, Mercedes-Benz straight-eight, Climax V8 and so on before revealing that, in fact, the world’s greatest race car engine was the Cosworth DFV whose 50th birthday falls happily enough this year.
