Goodbye supercharger. We'll miss you.

Jaguar Land Rover's wonderful but aging supercharged V8 is being set out to pasture. Rather than eating the costs and designing a new engine from the ground up, JLR plans to source V8s from BMW.

The car will feature a 4.8-liter BMW V8.

Expect the Bullet to be on sale in early 2017.

Let's try a hard one!

The V8 engine design has been with us for well over a century, and we have hundreds to choose from when deciding on the best one.

This is not your typical V8 engine swap.

This Toyota GT86 gets an unusual powertrain from Italy.

U mad, bro?

This particular Mustang has a 300-shot nitrous kit helping the 5.3-liter LS make 650-700 hp.

The pistons and crankshaft work, and when plugged into a "fuel" supply, it makes the most delightful and angry sound. It's absolutely remarkable.

The days might be numbered for the Audi R8's 4.2-liter V8, as a report claims the base model will offer a new 2.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 in its place.

Japanese tuner Jun Auto has placed a 2.4-liter V8 based on two engines from a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R motorcycle into the engine bay of a Subaru BRZ. The mill makes 362 horsepower and revs past 10,000 rpm to sound absolutely wonderful.

Porsche may be getting rid of the V8 diesel option for the Cayenne SUV because upgrading to comply with European emissions standards is pricey.

You have to love someone who gets incredibly committed to a very weird idea. What you see for sale here is a right-hand drive 1971 Mercedes-Benz 220D in South Africa, but this old Mercedes is now converted into a pickup, complete with bed cover, and there's big secret under the hood, too.

Since taking over Bentley, the Volkswagen Group has done a lot to modernize the marque and its products. And no small part of that came down to the engines. Under VW stewardship, Bentley introduced its ubiquitous W12 that makes it the largest producer of twelve-cylinder engines in the world. It then rolled out a smaller V8 co-developed with Audi that offers nearly all the benefits of the larger twelve but with less weight and better fuel economy. There's even been talk of hybrids and diesels. Bu

Have you ever wondered what a mini V8 sounds like? Neither had we. But thanks to one man with an old mill and lathe who built one with a 0.48-liter capacity, we're happy to learn that a miniature V8 can still maintain a low-frequency, lopy idle.

With tighter emissions and fuel economy regulations looming, Jaguar may have to do more than make a small, fuel-efficient hatchback to lower its model range's consumption figures – it also might give up its venerable V8 power, Drive reports. But not anytime soon, says Steven de Ploey, Jaguar's product and marketing director, who recognizes that the V8 can be replaced only by something that offers the same, or better, performance. But he has a word of caution: "We are not wedded to V8s."

One Ohio-based inventor who's long proposed a technology that substantially boosts the driving range of a typical V8 engine says his idea still has plenty of legs. Doug Pelmear, whose HP2g technology was the guts behind the high-miles-per-gallon converted Mustang in 2009 and the Revenge Verde (pictured) that was displayed at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, continues to try to get financial interest in his system. The idea is to boost fuel economy by shutting off fuel to some of the cylinders under n

If there's anything more manly than a V8 coffee table, it's a V8 coffee table carved from hardwood. That's exactly what Steve Brandenburg of Lexington, Kentucky spends his spare time crafting.

If you've heard of upstart boutique supercar maker Mazzanti, we salute you. About a year ago, we brought you news of this small Italian firm, which then was under the name Faralli & Mazzanti. The creation was the Evantra, and as the name of the company has changed, so has the car. The Mazzanti Evantra has been updated, and the previous turbocharged flat-six has been replaced with a 7.0-liter V8. The six-cylinder had two versions, capable of 403 or 603 horsepower. That is kid's stuff compared
