SC8 ®

21st Century Performance; 1930s Luxury Styling

Coachsmithing is developing the first high-performance inline 8 gasoline engine in half of a century. The SC8 ® will incorporate the latest technology in engine control systems, state of the art mechanical engineering, and computer design to produce an engine that can hold its own with the best of the world's current production supercars. All of the technology will be discreetly hidden from view so that the styling and configuration of the SC8 ® will be unmistakable similar to the legendary DOHC inline 8 engines that dominated racing and luxury motoring in the late 1930s.
