Big V8 Coupe Makes All the Right Noises

 

There is a trend in the automotive industry toward smaller displacement, turbocharged power plants. The push for efficiency and sustainable-energy usage is driving this change, as it should. But there are still a few holdouts that give us the raw experience of a normally-aspirated engine. By my estimation even as the push for efficiency continues, it would be great if you could always find a throwback powertrain like this – but I think its days are numbered. When even the likes of Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin are all going turbocharged, cars like these are definitely a dying breed.
