Well Ferrari has no torque or power below 6000 rpm and the Lamborghini car engines at least are better but require high revs as well. Porsche has twin turbos ad high torque figures and the longest lasting durability so I might go that route but then again a flat six in a boat? Maybe use the cayenne turbo v8

Where i went to school there was a 427 SOHC motor on a stand in the auto shops classroom. It was a cutaway show motor all polished and detailed probably done by Ford back in the 60's for the auto show circuit. I would imagine its still there today.

Mercedes AMG twin turbo V12, but not the one in the 65 cars, the one they build for the Pagani Zonda, just imagine the sound!

Here's my second choice. Very similar to an American supercar engine, but this one needs a couple turbos

Not trying to flame you here or get personal... but it sounds like you haven't owned a V-8 Ferrari. The Ferrari V8 in the 458 Italia is an absolute beast, producing mega power and torque (for its size and its normal aspiration) at just about 2500 RPMs and then at 3500-4000 it's unbelievable. The most flexible engine you can construct under naturally aspirated conditions. Nothing comes close.

The engines in its two predecessors, the F430 (2005-2010) and the 360 (1999-2004) have the same characteristics - just less peak power output.

Mind you, I am just talking Ferrari V8s here. The V-12s are different kinds of monsters.
