Radial Motion engine
The revolutionary new Radial Motion engine is now available for order.
Radial Motion, headquartered in Adelaide, Australia, is an engine manufacturer from concept to product, specializing in innovative design for automotive and aviation applications.
Radial engines were initially developed for aeronautical use, and now, Radial Motion offers equally comfortable performance at ground level, with the first customer engine being fitted to an Outlaw Porsche 356 racer built by well-known Australian Porsche enthusiast Ron Goodman.
The initial engine testing was performed on the modified 1972 Volkswagen Superbug. Now its wheels have traveled hundreds of kilometers and have completed the Adelaide Rally tarmac with excellent results.
Lightweight and compact 2.0-liter and 2.1-liter three-cylinder engines provide outstanding performance and rock-solid reliability, with unique visual appeal and touching exhaust sound. The naturally aspirated Radial Motion engine can produce 100 horsepower per liter, and the engine can maintain a high level of boost.
Inspired by the dawn of aviation and built with the technology of today, Radial Motion engines recapture the raucous spirit of an earlier time without sacrificing reliability or performance.
The Radial Motion engine adopts a simple and robust design, which can be modified and tuned by enthusiasts, providing ample power and a lot of personality.
For motorsport use, the high output, slim profile and lightweight of radial engines provide immediate benefits. The use of readily available parts, such as conrods, pistons and valves, makes repairs and maintenance simple and economical.
Radial Motion’s radial engine draws inspiration from the glorious years of early aviation and has undergone major improvements. Unlike aircraft engines after the 1920s, Radial Motion engines don't use the complicated master/slave layout that was popular at the time.
In contrast, ordinary journals like those used in V-twin engines provide a compact design. The engine's footprint is inside the Volkswagen Type 1 (Beetle) engine and keeps the engine's ground clearance while providing improved weight distribution.
The camshaft and other internal components can be easily accessed without having to disassemble the engine. Parts such as rockers, connecting rods, valves and pistons are readily available products worldwide.
The Radial Motion engine is a bolt-on replacement for 4-cylinder Porsche and air-cooled Volkswagen applications and can be specified to fit an ample range of other classic cars.
