China hater loses all of his credibility right there in that post.Real_I_Hate_China said:Malcolm loses all his credibility right there, 290 HP from a 3.6L V6? a 400 HP V8?
Exactly. Not impossible if you are Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Ferrari, or Porsche.Nissan 3.5 L VQ35DE V6 engine produces 300 hp (223 kW) and 260 ft·lbf (352 N·m)
Lexus 3.5 L 2GR-FE V6 produces 315 hp (232 kW) and 277 ft·lbf (377 N·m)
Lexus 4.6 L V8 produces 380 hp (283 kW) and 370 ft·lbf (502 N·m)
AVL specializes in diesel engines, not gasoline engines.AVL will be responsible for the design of these engines. AVL is a company based in Austria, not China, which designs engines for many companies, most notably Mercedes Benz.
Your entire arguement on the engines is based on horsepower figures given by Malcolm Bricklin, who is an American business man trying to get investors.Real_I_Hate_China said:AVL specializes in diesel engines, not gasoline engines.
Furthermore, even Mercedes doesn't have 300-HP V6 and 400-HP V8, aside from AMG versions.
A 300 HP V6 and a 400 HP V8 from Chery is a BS; Chery doesn't have the experience to build something like this, even with an outsourced design.
so china hater maby you should tell us why this is possible in china, and not japan, italy or germany.Real_I_Hate_China said:Exactly. Not impossible if you are Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Ferrari, or Porsche.
Impossible if you are something else, especially from China.
