the aston martin one-77 engine

the aston martin one-77 engine is the most Powerful Naturally aspirated engine in a production car
hear are some stats
7.3 V12
750bhp
220mph
0-60 3.5
the one-77 engine is the same size as the cinque engine but with the one-77 you get a lot more power.
i wish AMG could get that power out of their engine for the pagani zonda cinque. that would mean if they did it would be a powerful as the zonda r

Surprisingly, the One-77 has less torque. Missed that little statistic didn't you

Yes, the One77 Motor makes only 550 Ftlbs torque, vs 570 from the 6.1l V12 in the McLaren F1 (I think that was the previous record holder?).

But in all honesty, guys have been making WAY more Horsepower in the garage with NA big blocks for decades. 800HP from a tuned big block running on pump gas is not unheard of, but the engine is a 572 CUBIC INCH V8 with a 1200CFM Racing Carburetor.
Thats about a 20K big block. But is it worth it? Hell yeah.

But I believe 750 HP from a NA production engine is a big accomplishment. Cosworth did a great job of it. And I think its about damn time Aston Martin ha sput a proper engine in their cars. In this day and age, its Ford 5.9l V12 putting out little more than 500HP is unacceptable.

Its not just about the number though. You criticise the Aston Martin engine, but it produces more power per litre than the 572's making 800hp.

Who cares? What is it like to drive? How is the sound? How well does it spin up?

What about the engine's power/weight ratio?

Yes, it should for what it costs. I know a guy who gets 750hp and 670lb-ft out of what started as a 460 ford that he built for a total investment of less than $7,000. He drives it daily and has yet (5 years on) to have any problems with it, either. Big blocks aren't about hp/liter, that's like comparing the number of airbags in an Elise vs a Camry, they have a lot of other advantages.

HP/Litre is a joke measurement. You have to consider that block max's out at 5800 (the Aston Goes to, I believe 8K, I could be wrong though), while the torque is 600FT-LBS as low as Idle, and 650 for a 1200RPM Range. At Idle it has more torque than the 1 Million quid supercar. And then you have to consider thats on a carb and only 2 Valves per cylinder.
It is in stock trim a 10 second engine. If you buy the Race fuel alternative, its 9 seconds easy. Pour 10K in mods (new heads, cams, pistons, etc), you've got an 8 second car. For 30K, you will outrace a One-77 on the 1/4 mile.

Not that I don't think its necessarily better. I mean, the One-77s V12 is mounted 200MMs behind the front axle. It has a pushrod suspension. Its handling is supposed to be brilliant because of this. No cast iron Big Block camaro could hang with a One-77 on a circuit, ever, I'll admit.

I fail to see how 500bhp would feel inadequate.

Well, you could barely beat a mustang with that kind of power. What happens when you're at a light talking smack and the guy dusts you? Your woman gets out and walks away, that's what. Who wants that?

good luck getting that past emissions and obtaining any semblance of fuel economy though.
