Wonderful images - I was worried for a moment when they disappeared - thanks for reposting (the smaller size is much more manageable).
Can you tell me the name of the illustrator - I am unfamiliar with the signature and can make it read several different things

These came from a book, Automobiles et Autorails, by Amaury Lot.
In addition I have 24 framed prints on my study wall. Original size 20*11 inch. I will have to take digital photos of the more interesting ones and post shortly.

Any complement or corrections are welcome.

Someone speculated that it was an Allington, but this was discounted by Tony and in fact it was republished in "Can-Am Racing Cars 1966-1974" with "Mati Palk" shown as the artist.

Sorry, not a competition engine, but here is a cut-away view of the Rootes TS3 [3D.125] opposed piston 2-stroke diesel engine from the mid 60's. It is from a sales brochure/booklet that I picked up at the London Commercial Motor Show circa 1968. No indication of who the illustrator was.

Front and mid-engined! I don't know how many aircraft had mid-mounted engines (apart from jets, of course!) but the Bell Airacobra was the one that instantly sprang to mind.

I am afraid that I don't - there is another (at least so I presume) artist named Richard Morris but his normal subject matter is the human body. I have not found any similar (i.e., cutaways) by a Richard Morris. I did try to contact Mr. Morris at the email address listed on the drawing - I have not had a reply, but I also did not get a failure message from the server, so apparently the email address is still valid.

I wonder what we would agree on as the greatest ever piston engine design?

I would go for the (somewhat un-tried and tested) Pennine.

How do you define mid-engine talking about planes???
A car has a mid-engine when the motor is build in anywhere between the front and rear axles.

Well, a front engined-car normally has the engine between the front and rear axles, just nearer the front, but I know what you mean. The Bell Airacobra has the engine right over the wing, so I would call that mid-engined, the Dornier doesn't count. There is a perfct picture of the layout on the net, but I'm not sure about copyright.

er, Bell Airacobra and i think also Kingcobra have their single engine behind both pilot - and wing - like Dornier's second pusher engine, or the Douglas XB- 42 'Mixmaster's single ? afaik, anyway ... steven

Well, behind the pilot, as mid-engined cars have the engine behind the driver, but I would say this is over the wings.

Mid-engined or Central? I would call it central. I don't mean to be a trouble maker here and I know most sources on the internet would describe the Airacobra loosely as 'mid-engined' but it is all about the position of the engine/engines relative to the longitudinal centre line. This type of description takes into account not only potentially multiple engine mountings but also the aft, fore and lateral positioning of the engine/engines relative to the cog. In the case of the airacobra it was intended I believe to be smack on the cog (That was its problem). It can be described as mid-engined, but so could an aircraft with an engine on each wing. The term 'Central' takes into account the lateral position.

Am I in trouble making mode here?

Here is a mystery to me. According to the caption, this is a "Maserati Grand Prix Coupe" by Page, from High-Performance Cars 1954-55. I cannot find any photos of or information on such a car on the web, in my Maserati library, or on TNF. I assume it is a concept car that never got built. Does anyone have more information?
