Hardcore spiral 6some. But on a serious note. How come we not ever see these in cars. Are they not as efficient.?

They're usually used on propeller planes.

The shape just makes it very inefficient, since the headers and manifold would be much larger than an inline engine. Takes up more space than necessary.

Not true at all due to the shape of the radial you could package it almost anywhere.

It's the reason they're used in prop planes and not cars. The engine bay would be quite tall, increasing the drag and reducing performance and fuel economy.

Or you rotate the motor 90 degrees like in the 70's Mazda RX-7's
