The engine featured is the M178, which is an all-new, 4.0-liter V8 engine with Biturbo technology. This engine produces 503 hp at 6,250 rpm and 479 lb-ft of torque. With the added dry sump lubrication system, instead of a conventional oil pan, the front mid-engine is lowered by 55 mm. This allows for a center of gravity that is closer to the road.
