Celebrating International V8 Day

10 MARCH 2018

Today is International V8 Day. Scania’s Chief V8 Engineer Roger Olsson welcomes all the many thousands of V8 enthusiasts around the world to celebrate this great engine.


“We celebrate the V8 for its unique appeal – when emotion meets logic. This engine is the perfect mix of impressive hard and soft characteristics – the singular sound and the outstanding performance. This is truly one of its kind in the world of engines.”


Every year on 10 march, V8 fans around the world celebrate the V8 engine. It was on that day in 1932 that the first mass-produced V8 engine left Ford’s factory. Sincethen, V8 engines have found a place in everything from Rolls-Royce cars to Scania trucks, as well as in boats, buses and even motorcycles, providing sheer power and a distinctive rumble.
