Interesting, twin-turbo DOHC V8. Getting too complicated for my tastes.

I don't mind the DOHC. More spinning camshafts but no "rattling" pushrods or rockers. It can have the same torque and sound and feel even better than OHV and scream further up the rev range. They finally have the packaging height for DOHC with the mid engine layout.
The turbos I'm not fond off at all due to the nonlinear throttle response and the heat, but... "That's the way of the world"... Efficiency and emissions...
