8. Opposed Four/Six

Honda pretty much owns this engine configuration. The flat-Four/flat-Six has powered every Gold Wing model since 1975, as well as a few others: F6B, Rune, Valkyrie. Besides Honda, a few OEMs have produced opposed-Fours including Wooler and Zundapp. Brough Superior produced a crazy-cool opposed-Four (pictured) where the cylinders were stacked vertical, instead of horizontal.
