V8 – power in style

Launched at the end of the 1960s, Scania’s first V8 engine was Europe’s most powerful truck engine and it held this distinction for many years.

Scania is continuing this tradition with its latest top-of-the-line V8, which has the highest torque and power ratings of any V8 truck engine. But it’s not just about power. The V8 also meets the requirements of all the different Euro (and equivalent) standards, and stands ready to meet future environmental standards. The Scania 730 hp V8 in many ways represents the beginning of a new era, a new reign in the kingdom of high-output engines.

The V8 is based on Scania’s modular engine platform, introduced in 2007 on inline engines. It features a completely new design, yet it shares fundamental architecture and many components with its siblings in the Scania engine dynasty.
