Nissan unveils 400Hp engine weighing 40kg

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by cjvfr, Jan 28, 2014.

  1. Nissan and its motorsport partner NISMO have finally revealed the engine that will feature in its 2014 ZEOD RC electrified race car, which will compete in the Garage 56 experimental entry in this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. The engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder putting out an incredible 400 horsepower, but what’s more impressive is that the engine weighs just 88 pounds, which means a human is quite capable of carrying it (turbocharger and all).

  2. Hmm, no information about what fuel it is using.
  3. I had heard the 88 pounds is sans turbo charger, which would supposedly near double the weight. Can't always believe the know-it-alls on Jalopnik though
  4. An 80 pound turbocharger? That's a good one. Did you hear the one about the two blondes following the tracks of an unknown animal?
  5. A place I used to work at serviced turbochargers, some came off ships :)

  6. Errrrmahgawd, will this fit on my GTS-T douche-bag chariot?
  7. What's the A/R?
  8. Ummmm, I don't know. I sold the diesel injection parts, people in the workshop did the turbo stuff.
