A few yrs ago sat in a Dr waiting room flicking through a Classic Car magazine I came across an article where the writer was hooning around The area around Lake Como in a Lancia Rally car. He noted he came upon a Fiat 500 that was really moving. so following it in the Lancia realised while he could keep up he could not actually easily get past it. 

Amazed he followed it "To the gates of Moto-Guzzi a well known motorcycle manufacturer!" 

Totally intrigued he stopped and asked about it and was allowed in. The Fiat was a prototype with the Guzzi V twin engine in it , Didn't say what size engine but the article was quite interesting the writer did wax lyrical about the little Fiat and what could have been.

That was the start of the V Twin, originally made for the Fiat but they wanted too many made, so it was then fitted to a tractor, and after that into a motorcycle.

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.
