I have a friend who is an old top fuel dragster racer.
while he is no longer in NHRA as a driver, he does build some engines.
This is the motor he built for his 1970 Dodge Challenger:

Keith Black 512 HEMI.
Mooneyham 14-71 Supercharger.
Enderle injection.
he runs this car on methanol.

1500 horsepower.

I've seen this car get the throttle whacked, the frame tweaks and the doors pop open.

Speaking aesthetically pleasing engines-

the Mopar "Sonoramic" Cross Ram Wedge

the Ford Y-block

the Chevy 348/409

For ease of working on and general reliability-

The 225 Slant 6, hands down.
