Rolls-Royce motor car engines have always been on the largish side. There was a plan to make a small four cylinder engine immediately Post-WWII but it was "not considered appropriate" by the board.

Here are the engine sizes for Rolls-Royce models (which also apply to the equivalent Bentleys).

Respectful correction please.

Late Shadow I's and Shadow II's had a 6750 cc engine as did all the later cars, Spirits, Spurs etc. until the Seraph.
