King-Bugatti 16 cyl Aircraft Engine

During WW I, attempts to use this engine were frustrated by reliability issues, so the Duesenberg
folks got a contract to improve and manufacture it. Alas, the war ended before it got into any
aircraft. It was two in-line eights with separate cranks geared to the final output shaft.
1482 cu in (about 24.5 liter) 4.312 inch bore, 6.28 inch stroke; 410 HP
