    Small typo in the title, its 280Nm :p But it's still an amazing engine! I saw it a couple of days back, would love to see the internals / know what boost its running.

    No, it's 380nm as the title says, which is about 280lbft.

    Boost wise, I'd say at least 2bar.

    Ways only about 1/5 of what a 2J does, lol.

    Pic looks like it's been photoshopped mind you, I don't reckon he's actually holding it.

    Looking at the pic, it looks like a monoblock, like some of the F1 Turbo engines were, no seperate head. Nice. No head gaskets to blow.

    I wonder if they're using this to develop an engine for their new little rwd GT86 rival thing?

    Bugatti made this for the 1st time on his engines.

    The picture looks amazing, but :

    /No exhaust mani
    /No intake
    /No turbo

    so yeah, it can be light ^^

    For its reliability, let's see what happens at Le Mans....
