Default Different rounds vs engine blocks

I found myself wondering: what does it take to stop a vehicle with, say, less than 5rds? Will a .308 do it? .300 WinMag? Obviously there are a lot of variables, and a lot of solutions (like .50, etc.), but would a hunting type of caliber do the job?

I'm thinking that a reliable way to kill a vehicle's momentum quickly is to break the engine and ruin its compression, but idk.

Breaking the engine is a whole different game than killing the momentum.

The best way to break the momentum is shoot the driver.

I've heard .454 Casull is a pretty wicked round though.

20 mm should do the job.

I was specifically wanting to know what is the minimum force round to do the job. Do you guys think .308 can kill a car's engine? .30-06? 7.62x54? Anyone done any bench tests? I'm interested because I would like to buy a gun that could, academically, stop a vehicle from coming up my driveway, while giving earnest effort to not hurt anyone.
