Default [Motorauthority] Nissan develops 400hp 3 cylinder race motor.. That weighs 88lb.

Nissan Reveals ZEOD RC’s 400-HP 3-Cylinder Engine, Confirms 2015 LMP1 Entry

Nissan and its motorsport partner NISMO have finally revealed the engine that will feature in its 2014 ZEOD RC electrified race car, which will compete in the Garage 56 experimental entry in this years 24 Hours of Le Mans. The engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder putting out an incredible 400 horsepower, but whats more impressive is that the engine weighs just 88 pounds, which means a human is quite capable of carrying it (turbocharger and all), as NISMO chief Shoichi Miyatani demonstrates above.
