Name that engine! Which British cars are these 11 engines from?

We may not admit it but inside all of us is a little bit of an anorak, a car-spotter with a competitive streak. To put that theory to the test, we have pulled together this quiz to see how well you know your engines and British cars. So set aside a few minutes and see if you know your A-Series from your AJP V8s, and use your car spotter’s handbook (okay, just your encyclopedic memory will do) to identify one engine bay from another.

Jumped out of gear! Try again.

#10. This straight-six powers one of James May's favourite cars but what is it in?

You’ve blown it! Have another turn.

#11. You'll hear this TVR coming from miles. Which is it?

Didn’t start first time! Try again.



Well done! You passed.

Oh dear. You failed. Try again.
