    This really is a weird one.

    Jay Leno's Garage - Pebble Beach 2012: 1922 Megola Touring Motorcycle | Pebble Beach

    It's a Megola Motorcycle and the engine is in the front hub. A 5 cylinder radial engine, no front brake, no clutch and no transmission.

    Weird...

    The Mitsubishi Dignity is a weird car- it has 2 generations and the earlier one is made partnered with Hyundai, in which case it is called the Equus. That confused the bejeezus out of me because I was only aware of the Equus as the American version.

    [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_Dignity"]Mitsubishi Dignity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]


    I found other info about the new version, which is a badge engineered Nissan/Infiniti M56 LWB.

    Interesting- the first generation of this car may be the most powerful FWD Japanese car, since it has a V8.

    Mitsubishi also had the Proudia, which was marketed just under this car.

    Personally, I'd have a Toyota Century if I wanted a limousine. Besides, it is possibly the only Japanese car to ever come with a V12.

    A few years back, Japanese tuner Top Secret shoehorned the 1GZ-FE V12 from a Toyota Century into a Supra. Pretty nutty engine swap:

    What I didn't realize that the Century was the only Japanese prodiction car before or sense with a V12. Neat stuff.

    I almost got a 1UZ swap running then found a 1GZ on Yahoo Auctions Japan, instructed an importer to bid and then shock! I won.

    They are a strange beast, 5.0 Litre quad cam, 48 valve, drive by wire twin throttles & twin ecus.

    Any chance of getting photos of the Mercedes W31 or G4?

    It was a weird 6 axel Mercedes.

    I have seen the car along time ago in the Sinsheim Museum, but I need to find the pictures, I even don't know if I have any.
