The new race car

While the C7.R runs a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V-8, the C8.R is rumored to be running a turbocharged V-8, possibly with the same 5.5-liter displacement.

A report from May suggested the road car will sport three engines, one of them being a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8. If the rumor proves true, a race-prepped version of the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 could be the engine in the C8.R. The other engines destined for the road carpossibly dubbed the Zora.
