      There is no good V10 motor IMO, but I would say that the best of the bad is the E60 M5 motor.

      Nah, one from a Golf and one from a Jetta, and they are welded not bolted..

      Just personal preference really. I don't think the technology has caught up to make them practical outside of circuit use. Most of them are high strung, and do not make enough torque to get off the line as quickly as a comparable V8 or V12. That's not to say that there isn't one out there, but the usual V10 suspects (Lambo/Audi/VW V10, LFA V10, CGT V10, E60 V10) just don't work that well under normal operating conditions. Most of the V10s do make quite a bit of horsepower which lessens the pronounced "lack" of torque; however an attuned driver can still pick up that something is missing.

      Off road use is completely different. The V10s rely on high RPMs to churn out quite a bit of HP, and they do so very well once you get into the powerband.

      Personally, I don't care for high strung motors. I am not by any means promoting American metal that does nothing but leave black stripes everywhere, but most V8's have more livable HP/TQ ratios than V10s. The more "relaxed" V12's also have better HP/TQ ratios than the V10 line tends to. There are plenty of high strung V12s out there though, so that's not a very good comparison.

      ...uh torque is related to displacement, it has almost nothing to do with cylinder count.

      A Carrera GT makes 435 lb-ft because it's 5.7 liters, not because it's a V10. Any other normally aspirated gasoline 5.7 liter will make about the same amount of torque regardless of cylinder count.

      Doesn't the stroke of the engine have anything to do with it (i.e. long stroke = more torque), or is that just shifting the torque curve?

      Nope, almost nothing to do with the torque output or the torque curve.

      Compare an R8 V10 to an M5 V10. One is largely undersquare and the other is largely oversquare - yet the power curves are very similar.

      You made me look it up, and sure enough, pretty close looking curves.
