The new family of turbocharged V6 and V8 engines will power future models under the Volkswagen Group.
Audi and Porsche have entered into a joint engineering programme to develop a new family of turbocharged V6 and V8 engines. The engines are slated to replace the current V6 and V8 units used in the brands' model line-ups, and will be seen in a number of vehicles from the Volkswagen Group.
To be based on a common architecture, the engines will feature a displacement of 500cc per cylinder, taking total displacement to 3.0-litre for the V6 and 4.0-litre for the V8. The engines are expected to feature regular gas-driven turbos initially, with a possibility for the introduction of electric turbos at a later stage.
The new family engines are referred to as KoVoMo internally, and are slated to power future Audi, Porsche, Bentley, Volkswagen and possibly Lamborghini models. Audi and Porsche to jointly develop new engines | Car News | Others | Autocar India
