Honda has never developed a V8 engine for its cars, but the company has introduced a V8 and VTEC engine for boats.
This engine, model number BF350, was designed by Honda Marine. It is designed for boats and yachts over 7.6m in length, offering smooth power and “excellent fuel efficiency”, according to the makers.
The 5.0-liter engine produces 350 hp and uses 86 octane unleaded gasoline. It also uses Honda’s Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system, which uses a smooth cam profile at low revs and a high-performance cam profile. . high speed. Honda has also introduced the Boosted Low Speed Torque (BLAST) system, which accelerates the ignition time when the accelerator pedal is fully depressed.
Several technologies have also been developed to improve fuel efficiency. For example, lean control technology adjusts the fuel-air mixture according to speed and load, while programmed fuel injection delivers the right amount of fuel and air to each cylinder. Honda’s friction reduction technology increases ion coating on the piston rings and also helps improve efficiency.
The engine weighs 347 kg, and its price will be $ 46,000.
