Tested at the gruelling Nürburgring 24-hour race and Pikes Peak Hill Climb in Colorado, this new 5.0-litre V8 engine resets benchmarks for sports performance. Normal aspiration means immediate response, with no lag, and a dramatic sound. The cylinder head and other moving parts are engineered by Yamaha Motorsport (who supplied the LFA supercar’s V10 powerplants) while final assembly takes place at our Tahara plant. In clean room conditions, each engine undergoes rotational balancing and stethoscope tests that result in smooth yet incredibly responsive acceleration. Further to the above, for a rousing acoustic experience, Active Sound Control - a technology also developed for the LFA - blends engine and exhaust notes, creating an awesome GS F soundtrack.
