Key features and benefits for V8-FWD TCC
The compact engine‐drive package facilitates installation. Thanks to the aluminum cylinder block and cylinder head, the low‐friction, lightweight pistons, and a cast‐aluminum oil pan, the power‐to-weight ratio is excellent.
The direct injection fuel system enables high compression ratio with more energy coming from each drop of fuel – thus reducing both fuel consumption and emission levels.
Protected by a revolutionary titanium-ceramic coating and additional sensors, TCC is Volvo Penta’s answer to the corrosive effects of salt water!
The freshwater cooling system makes the engine last longer and run better. The closed‐loop system eliminates seawater exposure inside the engine, prevents corrosion and improves the engine’s durability and resale value.
The forward‐facing, Duoprop twin, counter‐rotating propellers work in undisturbed water to produce unparalleled thrust, straight and true tracking plus faster acceleration. Together, the FWD drive and the powerful gasoline engine complete the propulsion system with less noise and low‐level vibration.
