From what I understand, someone has the great idea of creating a v8 out of 2 Kawasaki ninja inline 4s. The crankcase and the flat plane crankshaft are custom designed. Then someone else installed said 2.4 liter V8 in a Subaru BRZ
Somebody was rolling in dough!
The sound, the SOUND! Ohhh, That is wonderful!
'Scuse me. I need to go buy a lottery ticket!
Do they road race with it? That’s what it looks like. I don’t read Japanese. They use Arabic numerals for some things, like RPM and HP. I don’t see torque, though. It looks like a lot of fun, and that is a sweet sound when it winds up towards 10K.
367ps(horsepower), 27.4kgfm or about 200ft lb
Wish I can afford it, but there’s nothing wrong with dreaming about it
BTW, I can’t read Japanese either. I read about it in popular mechanics
I want to say that the V8 variant of the Ariel Atom has a similar engine.
The BRZ lacks the “peel your face off with the wind resistance” feature that comes stock on the Atoms, though.
The 3L Ariel V8 was similar. It was two Suzuki Hyabusa engines combined together.
Insane barely begins to describe it.
