Truck drivers spend a ridiculous amount of time on the road, meaning they get bored pretty damn often. To kill some time, one truck driver — who goes by the name Bobi27015 on YouTube — decided to make a video where he imitated the sound of a Scania V8 engine. What a goof! But, hey, that’s what hours and hours alone in a semi truck will do to you.
Now, joking aside, Scania has made a name for itself by putting out quality engines over the years, and earlier in August, the Swedish manufacturer announced the availability of a new lightweight range of engines: a 900-HP six-cylinder, a 13-liter in-line, and a 1,150-HP 16-liter V8 engine. Needless to say, these things are the real deal!
Built on a Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) engine block and employing a simple wastegate turbocharger, Scania delivers top-of-class performance without the need for additional turbos or superchargers. The resulting light weight, combined with Scania’s proprietary Engine Management System (EMS) and common rail extra high-pressure injection system (XPI), optimizes fuel delivery enabling impressive torque, lower noise and exceptional fuel efficiency, certified by the EPA to meet the Tier 3 Recreational standard for marine diesel engines.
Proven performers relied on by demanding customers all over the world for recreational, commercial and military applications, Scania’s engines are designed to withstand the harshest marine conditions while providing maximum uptime and minimal wear. In addition, their compact, modular and lightweight construction make for a solution that is both easy to install and maintain. Suitable for a variety of installations, the engines possess an impressive list of standard and optional features.
But, anyway, if that was too much technical specs talk for your liking, our guy Bobi also came out with a sequel to his hilarious engine sounds video, which you can check out below. Enjoy!
