And the Kent engine made its way across the Atlantic to serve as the standard engine in the Ford Pinto and Capri - although the 1.6L in the Capri was replaced by the 2L in '71.The Kent was in so much more than just that as well. Debuted at 997cc in 105E Anglia, also a 1300 Crossflow in the Capri, a 1500 Crossflow in the Corsair, and the Classic for a short time. Powered all Mk1/2 Cortinas*, as well as some Mk3s, as well as the Fiesta. Eventually the block found its way into the 21st century as the Endura (fitting name) being fitted to the Ford Ka and Mk4/5/6 Fiestas.
*Except the rare Savage V6 conversion.
The Kent 1600 is also the spec engine in Formula Ford racing.I would say the Ferrari Colombo V12 is pretty iconic - especially in 3 litre form.

Definitely wank(el)-able, but I don't know about "iconic". They didn't use them in road cars, I believe.Mazderp's 4-rotors. Any of them. WANK.
Nobody had mentioned it. I don't think it really qualifies as "iconic", though. The Viper as a whole is iconic, but inside of that package, the engine tends to take second fiddle.Has anyone mentioned the Viper's V10 yet? If not, it needs to be mentioned.
The whole line of Porsche boxer sixes is iconic. The one in the 993s was just the final evolution. If the boxer six could be a dinosaur, the 993 version was T-Rex.The 993's aircooled Porsche boxer, too. The last evolution of Porsche's aircooled engines.
Mentioned earlier, and definitely iconic.4G63T, too. Duh.
