Attached to this tie clip is the miniature modell of a six cylinder flat engine crankshaft. A famous car manufacturer for this type of engine is Porsche, who created legends among sports cars, such as the 911 GT3.
The crankshaft of a flat engine is characterized by only one piston rod per piston pin instead of two, as found in a V-engine desing. This 6 cylinder engine therefore has 6 excentrical piston pins with thinner balance weights, called cheeks, whereas a V6 would have 3 pins with thicker cheeks.
The advantages of this desing are smoother running due to the stroke snchronism of oposite cylinders and smaller force of inertia. It's flatness can furthermore enhance a low center of gravity in the car design.
The clip comes in a clear display and storage box with blue suede, as visible in the second picture.
