Car co's have made v8's latley BMW,Toyota Lexus have real nice v8's. But they'll be lean and mean,be very fuel efficient.In some ways they are more fuel efficient than say a 4 cyl pushing a resonable sized body around..
They should have more cylinders than occupants.....
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

well new technologie is creaping into V8s all the time like this new one i heard how while just cruising along at a certain speed, the engine managment would switch of 2 or 4 cylinders to make the engine more efficient or something like that.
They will need to go more hi-tech, with all the bells and whistles of the current (and emerging) crop of 4cyl. Multi valve per cylinder, variable cam timing, ceramics etc etc. Pushrods will be a thing of the past soon, they will be like vinyl records. Four barrell carbies have already pretty much gone this way. I think Lexus has one of the best (techno wise) V8s around at the moment.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
