Intercooled and supercharged - groundbreaking engineering in terms of outboards for sure and designed, I understand, by the guy responsible for the original Porsche Formula 1 engine programme. As long as this doesn't mean it's built to be run flat out for an hour and a half every other Sunday afternoon and then has to be stripped and rebuilt before the next outing

Electro-hydraulic steering system. Engine is started from button rather than key. Like Mercedes SLR...:-)

General view. Tilted position is more horizontal than with other engines.

Nice engine, shame about the boat!

Seriously though, great pics. The installation at the transom is so neat. Looks amazing. I want one!!
