Default Unknown motor at Miami

Can anyone help me here.
I saw this motor at the Miami show last week, which looks to be a three rotor, twin-turbo diesel Wankel, but couldn't find anyone on the stand to get info from, and there was no literature to take.

Any ideas please?

Did you see the 800 cc single rotary they were using in those powered surfboards? Very small but the castings looked a little rough.

Have you guys seen this Wankel motor in a 21' Ski race boat? Australian I think, runs 118mph. Just when you think it's 'revving out', it comes on boost!
