Prototype Ferrari V8 twin turbo & gearbox
Ferrari has always been at the forefront of modern engine design, especially in the early 80's when this V8 turbocharged motor was developed. This is one of Ferrari's experimental designs. This small 2.0-litre twin turbocharged 90-degree V-8, bearing engine number 002, features two large turbos, with no catalytic converters, and claims to develop upwards of 400 horsepower. This factory experimental engine was developed with the help of Mr Nicola Materazzi, who was also instrumental in the development of the Lancia Stratos, Ferrari 288 GTO and F40, and the Bugatti EB110. It is believed that only three such examples were produced, with one now residing at the Ferrari Museum. This twin turbo engine, with its characteristic red cam covers, represents a rare opportunity to obtain a factory experimental-development engine.(txt from RM)
