Default Ferrari's 11,500-hp engine







Quote:
This is Ferrari’s most powerful engine, churning out 11,500 hp from twenty cylinders of natural gas combustion and producing more than twenty times the power of Ferrari’s newest car, the 562-hp 458 Italia. It is one of two V-20 engines in Ferrari’s trigeneration powerplant, a facility located on the Italian automaker’s Maranello campus that produces electricity, hot water, and chilled water for the property’s energy needs. First fired up on April 26, 2009, the engines each provide 8.6 megawatts of electricity.

The red engine block stands roughly ten feet tall enclosed in a concrete room to dull the constant thrum of 750 rpm. The cylinder bore measures 13.8 inches and each piston travels 15.7 inches in a stroke, giving the engine a total displacement of 770 liters.

Of course, Ferrari didn't actually build the engine. It's supplied by Rolls-Royce.

If Ferrari would build it than it would probably fail! Rolls-Royce builds airplane engines so they know how to build quality.
