Top 10 Most Powerful and Best V8 Engines Currently Available

V8s are still the best engines out there

Although some would dispute this statement, V8 engines are still the golden middle ground. At least performance/price wise. They are still much more powerful than their 4 or 6-cylinder brethren, while not being nearly as expensive as V12 or larger powerplants. Although, they aren’t particularly fuel efficient. And that seems to be one of the most important engine-related categories these days. But, if history taught us anything, it’s that fuel efficiency is overrated. Especially in the U.S. where some of the best V8 engines ever built served as automotive industry’s backbone.

V8 once reigned supreme, then went into hibernation come early seventies. It has since returned in glorious fashion, only to begin making way for smaller forced induction mills in recent years, again. But, fear not. Things aren’t nearly as grim as they used to be during the seventies. Market is still flooded with V8s. What’s even more important; it’s flooded with extremely good V8s. Whether it’s power, sound or build quality you’re going for, modern V8s often have it all. Here are some of modern era’s best V8 engines money can get you these days.

About Nikola Potrebić

Despite driving a piece of junk, Nikola still manages to survive the harrowing experience called "A road trip in a Yugo," day in, day out. On the other hand, precious few things move him as muscle cars do. Especially those from the bygone golden era, which makes him wonder why wasn't he born a few decades earlier? Well, at least he's been given the opportunity to enjoy the likes of Pontiak Aztek, Chrysler PT Cruiser, Fiat Multipla, and other lovely millennium cars way, right? Come to think of it, I'll stick with my Yugo. Thank you very much.
