The high-performance, naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 is engineered for low weight and high strength with forged connecting rods, and titanium intake and exhaust valves that allow a 7,300-rpm redline. Add to the mix optimized intake and exhaust manifolds, and the result is an engine that delivers 467 horsepower and 389 lb.-ft. of peak torque.

The high-pressure D-4S direct injection system, which also uses port fuel injectors, allows a high compression ratio (12.3:1) for optimized performance and efficiency.
