Basically ALL OF THEM except Ferraris . Even Ferrari-engined Maseratis have cross-plane V8s. And yes, I like the sound of a cross-plane V8 much better myself. By the way, those thinking the flat-plane crank V8 is some kind of exotic beast, V8s started life with flat-plane cranks in the late 1800s, until better technology gave birth to the cross-plane crank in the early 1920s (more complex and expensive to manufacture). Have a good one folks.
