    Yeah, basically, duplicate the Lexus LF-A engine, but with more displacement, and possibly forced induction. A five to six liter engine, with forced induction, at 10k+ revs, would be a wickedly powerful (and expensive) engine.


    I don't know what it's crank looks like.


    If you are a gear head, you owe it to yourself to go and hear an LF-A engine at full chat. One of the best sounding engines of all time; easily makes my top five best sounding car engines.

    Never seen one in person but man on video it sounds amazing. If they could do something like that for top of the line viper or special edition for the next one it's would be amazing

    Amazing yes. But it will not happen.

    Oh well, guess we will have to "settle" for the next hemi'. Which, if things keep going the way they are, should be one hell of an engine.

    Pretty sure that was just someone random that drew that up.

    The Ford Taurus SHO V8 that Yamaha designed suffers from certain cam failure.

    I was not aware of that. Good to know though. That said it certainly wasn't the first or last motor to have cam issues

    At this point....I would settle for two Alfa-Romeo 1.75 Litre inline 4's bolted together to make a 3.5 Litre Inline 8......with twin electric trubocharging.

    There.....Not only would you have an engine for the new Viper (though I would prefer a new name)...BUT you could also have a differently tuned version of the engine for a future 300 / Nassau / Imperial.

    Out of all motors why this one? Not that its a bad choice but why not 2 huricane motors.

    I mention the Alfa 1.75 Litre because it's already on the shelf.

    Obviously....two 2.0 Litre Hurricane 4's bolted together would be better.....assuming it appears sometime during my lifetime!:p:D

    I just hope that not all things shared with Alfa are this long of a wait. The next viper being one of them.

    The Alfa 1.75L is being phased out, it’s not “on the shelf”.

    The "Alfa" 1742 cc is smaller and lighter than the GME 2.0 turbo.

    In a TCR class race car can be seen the size of the engine.


    note: the race car, an Alfa Romeo Giulietta, is not developed by FCA, but by Romeo Ferraris.

    The next "Viper" could be an electric sport car.

    There is no replacement for the Viper. There may be another car, but it will never replace the raw beautiful car that is Viper. I took mine out on Sunday for a 400 mile ride and it is wonderful. Everything is the car world that should not be is Viper. It is sometimes harsh, noisy, rough, but alone so damn fun. I love it.

    Looks like V. Galante's original idea sketches for GEN V.
