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.

Damn, sports car racing, especially LMP1 is REALLY heating up. Porsche entering, this Nissan stuff, and Ferrari is expected to make a bid for an entry too.

My goodness, that is quite beastly. It actually quite resembles a snowmobile engine. http://www.arcticinsider.com/Images/...0226145048.jpg

Really really interesting. Im excited to see what else they can do with it. Maybe the new z will feature something like this? Its a bit small for a car like a z but maybe a bigger one in the future.
