2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid Blue, 2013 Infiniti G37x Coupe
Actually the final portion of your comment is not factual. It gets somewhat confusing, but try to follow paying close attention to each engine's specific name in bold to make things more clear.it never sold though. bmw decided to keep it from the streets, so it remained a concept car and museum star and its engine went into the mclaren f1.
The really exciting thing about seeing these M8 photos is that previously it had been rumored that BMW had crushed the M8 concept car. It is great to see that was not true and that it still exists.On October 25th, 1990, Gordon visited Munich. The hopped up production V12 would not do: "Too big and heavy. Definitely not for us. Then Paul asked 'What do you really want?', so I told him: big displacement in the smallest possible package-size -- absolutley no more than 600mm long -- revving to around seven-five -- 550-plus bhp -- maximum weight 250kg -- rigid enough to work as a load-bearing structural member -- dry-sump lubrication to minimize overall height and avoid surge in high-G cornering.
And Paul simply said 'We'll do a new engine'."
Gordon had instructed the team of Motorsport engineers that power-to-weight was the bottom line and to consider that in everything that they did. "Never use a 10mm bolt when 9mm would do - consider weight as driving the design." He could see them obviously thinking 'who is this loony, telling us how to design engines?' but Paul Rosche backed him up.
The final engine that Motorsport developed out performed McLaren's 550hp target by 14 percent at 627hp. It met the 600mm length requirement, but with all necessary ancillaries, exhaust system and silencer it overshot the weight target by about 16kg. Gordon would forgive them that - 6.4 percent overweight was more than compensated for by 14 percent extra power of course. The first completed S70/2 V12 was delivered to McLaren for fitment to one of their test mules March 4th 1992.
