An engine type capable of producing plenty of power and torque.
Though doesnt mind having a guzzle of petrol. The V8's of our world have used petrol too fast and have landed us in an oil crisis. Producing 40kw/L is not exactly a good engine. These big v8 cars infact tend to be mechanically challenged vehicles, It is wrong these days to see how a V8 instantly makes a car great. The Dodge Chargers and Ford Mustangs of the past with their inefficient carburettors have consumed all our fuel. These American Muscle cars are typical of dumb people who have no idea about a good car, and are just obsessed with power and sound without weighing up the consequences of other aspects such as traction and weight. The V8 is a dying breed and i am happy, cherish them while you can you stupid people who think a big engine makes a good car, because they will one day be gone.
A 1.5 Litre 4 cylinder car was driving interstate along a freeway, while a 6 litre v8 roars past. 5 minutes later the 1.5 litre car passes a petrol station and the driver sees the v8 driver re-fuelling. The 1.5 L driver laughs. You v8's can go fast until your petrol runs out, or until your primitive suspension systems or lack of grip cause you to spin out.

Some Piss old technology engine, which somehow gets its arse handed to it every time it goes up against a mazda 1.3 litre rotary engine, or any 2.0 and up turbo car. usually found in cars with brands such as ford, holden, chevy and other dodgy american brands. unfortunately since america was so afraid to import DECENT japanese cars, the damn idiots with honda civics deserve to get theoir arses whipped, try something like a 3S-GTE, SR20DET or a 2JZ-GTE perhaps next time honda boys. Therefore, fortunately, the day of the V8 is numbered to extinction, as a total dinosaur of the motor age, exceptions are the V45 from nissan and the 1UZ from Toyota. at least they have some decent technology in them.
dickhead with V8: hey man, i have a V8! vroom vroom! lets race!
me: ok then, lets see whatcha got?
dickhead left way way behind: WHAFUCK?

and thats how the V8s died.

may have a lot of power with the big size = more weight, thats y u need all that power to push the weight.
v8 = slow

y do ya think turbos are invented...to gain as much if not more power and is hell of a lot lighter. let see u race ya v8 on a tight drift track, drag racing is nothing, no skill wat so eva, just put ya foot down and thats it.

try shifting gears while entering a corner, will see were your heavy engine takes u...hopfuly the wall!
Did u see that v8, under steer into the wall, cant understand why... the weight of the engine and the momentom which made it hit into the wall. HUUHH!! well its still a v8 it be alright...HAHAHA!!! not!

Stop draging 4 bangers and take on a 6cy Twin Turbo if ya think ya v8s got so much power. if not learn to drift and/or circut race, then we will see who has the better engine!
