Imho, Allen Millyard is kinda like the UK motorcycle equivalent to Pete Aardema. He's been building some very cool custom V engines from pairs of other engines for a long time. It might be of interest for another project like yours, just in case someone had to have a V12 or similar that was might fit within a smaller space.
Here's a link to a Hot Rod article on Pete and Kevin's latest homebuilt V12, 1,200 cid worth.

This V12 was design for hydroplane boat racing. I guess it's obvious why this engine wasn't a good candidate to fit in the Miura
