I owe Mikio Tsukui, Manager Europe Sales Department at Isuzu Motors big time! Why? because he’s been digging in the company archives searching for Biglorryblog’s latest obsession–the mighty Isuzu Giga EXZ powered by the alas-no-longer-with-us 30-litre 600hp V10—and he’s come up with not just a photo of the engine, but also a BROCHURE for the 600hp EXY (4×2) and EXZ (6×4) tractors sold with the aforementioned fire-breathing 10TD1 diesel and sold in Japan around 7-8 years ago. That should make Richard Stanier jealous (assuming he hasn’t got one already)…and I’ve saved all these images in ‘Expando-Vision’ so if you want to see them bigger just click on the image…..

At last–a shot of the 30-litre 600hp naturally-aspirated V10 10TD1 engine!
Behold—40 valves of un-blown throbbing Japanese power! And my thanks once again to Mikio Tsukui for making my dream come true–and he’s promised me more too. I can’t wait!
