2014 Maserati Granturismo
I am impressed at the 620hp that this engine will produce out of a 3.0V6.
This engine is quite interesting. Has a 11:1 compression ratio, generally you don't see
that high compression ratio on a turbo. However by having a higher compression ratio, the engine
can run on lower boost and the turbo can have a longer life span. Another interesting thing about this
engine, is that it has a 90 degree configuration with a different firing order, than the current V6 engine. I think they
are going after a different sound. I still believe that a V8 just makes the best sound, that can't be replicated with less cylinders.
I would like to see them add the other 2 cylinders bringing it to a 4.0V8, where we could expect over 800hp.
That would be spectacular.
What do you think about this engine being a v6?
