Key features and benefits for V8-FWD

Compact and lightweight package

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‐toweight ratio is excellent.

Direct injection technology

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.

Variable valve timing

With the variable valve timing, each movement of the intake and exhaust valve can be optimized for speed and load. Combustion will always be correct irrespective of rpm, resulting in higher torque and acceleration across the whole rpm range.

Freshwater‐cooled engine

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.

Forward Drive

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.
