Virginia-based Volvo Penta has introduced a new V8 gasoline engine for the leisure marine market. The new V8-430 is a high-performance engine based on the award-winning V8-380 design launched by Volvo Penta last year.
“The new generation of V8 engines from Volvo Penta is the result of intense development work and represents a real technological leap forward in the field of gasoline sterndrive engines for marine use,” said Ron Huibers, president of Volvo Penta of the Americas. “The V8-430 is based on the same base engine as the V8-380, but includes a number of modifications inside the engine that enables increased power output.”
The V8-430 features Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technology, which optimizes torque at low RPMs while maximizing performance at high RPMs, resulting in faster acceleration, increased top speed and smoother, better response in the mid-range, according to a company press release.
