I used to wonder about the sense of this - 2 big diesels would be a better bet - until someone pointed out it would take a lot of shots to knock out all 8 engines!!!
and 2 big diesels would take up a lot of cargo space.

They were 300hp as standard but many racing ones were 400 or even 450hp. They thrived on very high revs and lots of petrol!!!
