      it's a shame that they stopped making them because of regulations

        From what I observed people liked it for its low operations costs. Euros are probably going to really get btfo on the car ownership front because it's only going to favor EVs. Even hybrids aren't going to be spared if they keep getting stricter.

    Depends, one like the husqvarna 701 with 70hp would be a fine car if it's lightweight enough.

        There are. As a rule of thumb they are only really useful off road.
        I think the Nuda is from the eighties.

    Because it would require a really big cylinder, which would be really heavy and have a bunch of vibrations mitigated or outright cancelled by adding more cylinders

      This. One giant cylinder would be better suited to low, fixed RPM operation. It would have horrible response, the rev range would be similar to or worse than a diesel as would the power band. You’d need a good bit of counterbalancing to keep the thing from shaking the car to bits

    because the smallest you can do in a car is a 4 cylinder becuas e you need to have a culinder for per each wheel thats why the motorcycles only have one cylinder in their engine becuasee they only ovbe one wheel

    because what really matters for power is total displacement. You'd need a frickoff huge cylinder which would be a nightmare for stability/vibration due to the inertia.
    OR you'd need a smaller cylinder that revs faster, yielding the same problem.
    (turbos get around this a bit by forcing more air through the intake than it would otherwise be able to move, but with concomitant issues with reliability due to stresses on the engine)

    >this post may or may not be bullshit, but i believe it.

    I think the Bond Minicar which you cite is a perfect example of why one cylinder probably isn't enough (as much as it's interesting).

    The MSB had a single cylinder and that thing fricked.

    TLDR It's not a practical technology for full size automobiles.
    Nitro RC cars, however, are a perfect fit for such technology. Hobby scale nitro engines typically have displacement in the neighborhood of just 2 - 4 cubic centimeters run on premix 2-stroke oil and nitromethane. They can rev to several tens of thousands of rpm (40k isn't unheard of) and make hilarious power for their size, as many as 1-2 HP.
