The All-New Ford 5.2-liter V8

Known colloquially as the Voodoo V8, Ford’s latest engine boasts 526 horsepower and a race-tuned setup thanks largely to its unique flat-crank construction — a strategy usually employed by the likes of Ferrari. Its 8,250 RPM redline is almost as impressive as its gorgeous soundtrack, and the unit — found exclusively in the new Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustangs — manages to nail the 100 horsepower per liter mark, which Wards notes is unusual for V8s without forced induction.
