V12? Why not V10 twin-turbo?

I think they're unrelated.

I seem to remember that the Triumph four-pot was used elsewhere, though.  Was 
it used in some early ovloVs or SAABs or something?

(Actually - I don't think there _is_ a native British V8.  I think they're all
 derivations of late 1960s and early 1970s US designs.)
