they state they are in the final development stage nearly ready for production
How often do you hear about a "revolutionary" new engine that isn't "in the final development stage nearly ready for production"? :)

This has potential. Very similar to the torpedo engines from the WWII era. Although the "Technical Data" they provide is very lacking in detail, I estimate it is likely in the 1.2 to 1.5 liter range, so the performance is respectable if true. A big advantage for this approach is small frontal area and light weight for the power. The challenge is in lubrication strategy and cooling. I will interested to see how this progresses.

"....due to the new type of "axial concept".

I love axial engines - one of my pet research areas. But new...?? Well over one hundred years old. Probably something new in there somewhere, but the concept? I don't think so.

At least it's an established company that appears to have some idea of what they are doing. I wouild really like to see some real technical details.
