Configuration and displacement are not the same. I have a 1.8L V6, smaller than many I4s; Lamborghini has made a 3.5L V12 which is smaller than most V8 engines. A model builder has made a 12cc (0.012L) V12.

This is clearly a subjective descision; but engine configuration alone does not really determine much else about the engine. This V12 engine in the video is 12ccs, for example, and can fit in your hand, which is smaller than a Geo Metro I3 engine. If you held bore and stroke constant, of course, the V12 would be much larger and make more power than a V8, but otherwise some V12s will fit in nearly the same dimensions as some V8s, and vice versa. gizmag.com/…

comment Torque curve on modern turbo-charged petrol engines
Haha yes, that's been covered in the comments. kW and Nm will cross at 9549, but this is also assuming that they are graphed against matched y-axes (see the BMW 335i graph in an answer, it's in hp and ft. lbs. but graphed against variant axes).
