Why Scania created the legendary V8 engine


Recommended Posts

Scania Group Press Release  /  March 13, 2020

This historical film tells the story of why Scania developed the first Scania V8 engine, the DS14, in the 1960s.
When the Swedish authorities raised the speed limit and maximum gross weight permitted for heavy trucks, it created the need for a new, more powerful engine. Scania's engineers met that need with the now-legendary 350 horsepower V8 engine.
More than half a century later, the Scania V8 remains a powerful tool for the most demanding transport operations. This is where that legend began.
