4.0L

Porsche 4.0L air-cooled flat-six with 4-valve cylinder heads, showing CFD optimized ram-air induction system via rear side window opening and Inconel / titanium exhaust system. Restored and modified by Singer Vehicle Design and Williams Advanced Engineering.

Scott Blattner, Commissioning Owner: “My journey with Singer Vehicle Design began with the restoration of two coupes. In 2016 these were joined by my Targa, which recently ran in the famous Hill Climb at Goodwood Festival of Speed. I became intrigued by the possibility of further evolution and I’m very excited to be sharing the first details of the engine for my car.”

The new AMG GT R “The Beast from the new Transformer movie” 🔞🖤💀❌🤘🏻
AMG. Driven By The Inner Force.

Next Level of Driving Performance.

The AMG M178 4.0L biturbo engine in the AMG GT R has an output of 585hp and the peak torque of 700Nm is available between 1,900 and 5,500rpm. The AMG 4.0L V8 engine features the tried and tested twin turbochargers, which are not mounted on the outside of the cylinder banks but rather inside the V configuration – experts call it a “hot inside V”. This basic principle of the new AMG V8 family has been further optimised for the AMG GT R. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission configured in a transaxle layout at the rear axle has likewise been extensively revised by the AMG developers to make the transmission even more suitable for the racetrack. Drivers can tailor the AMG GT R to their personal preferences using the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT controller. Various modes are available: “C” (Comfort), “S” (Sport), “S+” (Sport Plus) and “I” (Individual). The “RACE” mode optimally adjusts the shift strategy of the dual clutch transmission to the needs of racetrack usage.

A 1950 Pickup with awesome patina and great potential…so how would you’d build this one?

Leave your build ideas in the comment section!

I’m thinking vintage looking outside, modern where it counts so I could drive it everyday:

Outside: An 8274 upfront, a small lift, bigger steelies with upsized tires and leave the patina alone!

Underneath: a 4.0L HO with a T-60 turbo kit, NVG3550, and air lockers

Inside: vintage AC/heat, Dakota Digital silver VHX gauges, tilt wheel, stereo and some Mastercraft buckets w/lumbar suport for traveling the miles on and off the road!

I got the request for my “Top 10 engines for swapping into an S chassis. Preferably avoiding a V8, but I respect your choices” Well this is a fun one, except it’s hard to actually name 10 swaps that people actively do. But here is in my opinion the top 10′s for powering a S-chassis. 

In no order.
Toyota / Lexus 1UZ-FE: 4.0L V8
GM based LSX engine 4.8-7.0L V8
Toyota 2JZ-GTE 3.0L I6
Toyota 1JZ-GTE VVTI 2.5L I6
Nissan RB26DETT 2.6L I6
Nissan / Infinit VQ35DE 3.5L V6
Toyota / Lexus 2JZ-GE 3.0L I6
Nissan SR20DET 2.0L I4
Nissan CA18DET 1.8L I4
Nissan KA24DE 2.4L I4


As always these are in no particular order, Feel free to message me for suggestions as what to use for my next Top 10. I have 20,000 + Car pics on my Computer so i might as well use them for something

I appreciate it and my go to lens is a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM

The new AMG S63 4MATIC+ “The Luxury Rocket Launcher”.
New peak of performance: M177 4.0L V8 biturbo engine with twin-scroll turbochargers

The versatile AMG 4.0L biturbo V8 engine in the S63 4MATIC+ takes peak performance to a new level at 450kW (612hp). Maximum torque attains a new best value of 900Nm. It is available over a broad engine speed range of 2750 to 4500rpm and so provides a feeling of effortless superiority in every accelerator pedal position. A sprint from zero to 100 km/h is absolved in 3.5 seconds, and this dynamic acceleration only ends at the governed top speed of 250km/h (with AMG Driver’s package: 300km/h).
The advanced AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engine utilises well-proven twin turbocharging, with the two chargers not located outside on the cylinder banks, but rather between them in the V of the cylinders. The advantages of the “hot inner V” are a compact engine design, an immediate response from the twin-scroll turbochargers and low exhaust gas emissions thanks to optimum air flow for the close-coupled catalytic converters.
Two twin-scroll turbochargers are deployed for the first time to boost performance and improve responsiveness further. The housing is divided into two parallel flow passages. Combined with two separate exhaust ducts in the exhaust manifold, this makes it possible to control the exhaust gases on the turbine wheel separately. The exhaust gas from the first and fourth cylinders of the cylinder bank is fed into one duct and exhaust gas from the second and third cylinders to the other duct. The aim is to prevent the individual cylinders from having mutually adverse effects on the gas cycle.
The results are increased output due to improved cylinder charge with fresh mixture, more torque at low revs and very immediate response times.
