    also, Jeremy Clarkson is not the one who actually drives the car for those tests. its the "Stig" that drives it, basically a professional driver.
    The "Stig" is Nigel Mansell... a former F1 Champ with Williams Renault....back from the Senna, Prost, Mansell days..

    How do I know this? They gave it away the first time they introduced the Stig on the show, and mentioned that he suffered from "Mansell Syndrome"... hmmm........

    It is more like a 2.6L engine. A regular piston engine has a combustion event during every other cycle . A rotary egine has a combustion event during every cycle. A rotary fires twice as often as a piston engine... effectively doubling displacement.
