V8’s Packing Serious Power
The 8 Cylinder engine is synonymous with performance vehicles. The V8 configuration could be the most famous engine of all time. Who doesn’t know what a V8 is, or recognize its awesome snarl?
There was a time in North America when nearly every family sedan and coupe rolled off the assembly line with a V8 engine. Those days are long gone and except for the recent resurgence of the Chrysler 300C, Dodge Charger and Pontiac G8, you would be hard pressed to find a V8 in any family car that doesn’t have a price tag beyond the reach of most people.
So beyond Luxury barges, where does that leave the V8? Two words, Sports Cars. The V8 is still alive and kicking in many sports cars that span the spectrum from the $35 244 Mustang GT to the $276 000+ Ferrari F430 Scuderia.
Below are the 11 hottest V8’s on the market today.
