    Oh hai guys here's the engine of the goodwood car.

    Screenshot_20180806-231158.png

    Look closely at what we can see. Dbw throttle, accessories, piping, ancillary feeds.

    Google latest B58.

    Not cut and paste, that's for sure. Could be B58TU I suppose, but who knows yet.

    This is it! 3.0-litre I6 that we’ve all been waiting for. Looking forward to seeing them remove the engine cover as well.

    Pretty epic shot right there, but more questions arise...

    I had mentioned before that I felt a 4cyl and two 6 cyl trims would be available (purely my own thoughts), but now I'm curious if the iron block is indeed a top trim option (maybe GR?).

    what leads you to that theory? This looks like a W2A intercooler set up, and more like a b58 than s55

    Well, previously I had thought the new motor was an iron block variant of the B58, which makes plenty of sense for both cost cutting and fitting nearly the same package under hood.

    However, one of the people close to Tada said its a new architecture (not B58), so I ran with it as his info has always been solid thus far.

    But that clearly looks like a B58, so what's the missing piece? Is this mysterious new motor in the 3300lb car? Is that why it's actually heavier?

    If the case is the latter, will it actually have 4-450hp? Maybe the B58 car is the 340hp version.

    Hmmm fair point. But rumours also said the goodwood car had the new engine right? Interesting. The inlet charge pipe us certainly morw reinforced than a usual B58, and there are definitely some differences but nothing ground breaking.

    Well, I've sent my thoughts over to one of the engineers.

    We shall see what he says.

    Similarly, the car that does 0-100kmh in 3.9s... That's with this engine I assume?

    And it certainly sounds different compared to other B58, more than just exhaust too

    Yes, provided it's the same B58 used in the mules (likely).

    Engine looks almost identical to that of the BMW B58.
