Nelson Racing has announced that its engine will be available for sale starting in 2018, with pricing and availability subject to change.
The company said the new-generation P4 turbo, which the company says is more efficient than its P5 petrol engines, will be released for $9,995.
That will put the P4’s production at approximately 2,000 engines per day, which would make it one of the fastest in the world.
The P4, which is the fastest production petrol engine in the industry, will arrive in 2018 and will be produced in two variants: the “Super” and the “Bore” versions.
The P4 Super variant is estimated to have a top speed of about 280 kilometres per hour, while the “Dore” variant will have a peak speed of 330 kilometres per overhanging.
The two variants of the P5 are expected to arrive later this year, with the “Gorge” version expected to have the most performance.
The news comes on the heels of a string of announcements by Nelson Racing, with a new flagship sports car expected to be unveiled at the end of the year.
“We are pleased to announce that Nelson Racing is launching the P3.5 supercharged diesel engine for the 2018 Nelson Racing Nelson GT4, powered by the supercharged, direct injection, turbocharged V6 petrol engine.
This engine is designed for extreme performance, reliability and fuel efficiency,” said Nelson Racing CEO and CEO of P3 engine, Tim Sargent.
“The Nelson Racing P3 supercharged engine will deliver up to 3,000 HP, while producing up to 6.4 GWh per litre.
The new engine will provide more than 20 percent more torque and greater acceleration than previous P3 diesel engines, enabling a more aggressive driving experience.”
This new supercharged P2 engine delivers up to 4,500 HP and delivers more than 25 percent more performance.”
