Lol wiki to the rescue...

Im really after how many of each were built - ie, total number of k series engines fitted to cars. Although could prob get away with the total number of k series engines produced.

Im doing a report in business venturing, basically trying to argue for the establishment of a company specializing in creating new tuning parts for the k. The whole topic really is to prove that business growth is possible in a dying/dead market - the fact the k is no longer produced yet would a company still be able to grow being based on it. So really i need numbers of engines produced to guage an idea of the potential market size, obv not taking into account cars which have died over the years etc etc but doesnt have to be too technical as im pitching the essay to a bunch of business lecturers.

"Over 3 million K-series engines have been built since the engine's introduction, and over 100,000 KV6s."
