Lexus confirms the development of a new twin-supercharged V8 engine that will be designed for sports and flagship models of the Japanese brand
The Japanese manufacturer is developing a new twin-supercharged V8 engine that will replace the current five-liter atmospheric G8. This follows from the statement of the Toyota motorsport team Gazoo Racing, which confirmed its participation in the next 24-hour Nurburgring 24-hour marathon with the Lexus LC coupe. “In 2020, the team uses a number of new technologies in the race, including the all-new twin-turbo V8, designed for future road cars, including sports models,” the message said.
There is no specifics at the moment, however, there is an assumption that the engine, with a working volume of four liters, will produce about 600 horsepower. The turbo engine will replace the five-liter naturally aspirated unit, issuing 477 horsepower.
