The 10 Most Unusual Engines of All Time;;; tags:10,most,unusual,engines,of,all,time,;;;ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Lanchester Twin-Crank Twin, 1900 Think the Commer was smart? This one puts it on the trailer. England's Lanchester Motor Company was founded in 1899. The firm's Lanchester Ten, introduced a year later, featured an air-cooled, twin-crankshaft, 4.0-liter flat-twin driving the rear wheels. One crank lived above the other, and each piston had three connecting rods—two light outer ones and a heavier one in the center. The light rods went to one crank, the heavy rods to the other, and the two shafts counterrotated. The result was 10.5 hp at 1250 rpm and a remarkable lack of vibration. If you've ever wondered what engineering elegance looks like, this is it.
