Top Five: Vicious V8s

These are the most powerful V8s on sale in Australia

1. McLaren 720S - 537kW

537kW Macca’s monstrous twin-turbo is the most powerful V8 money can buy in Australia right now, and produces that tyre-tearing figure from just 4.0 litres.

2. Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk - 522kW

522kW Jeep’s unapologetically bonkers Grand Cherokee Trackhawk claims second spot by starting with 6.2 litres of displacement then adding a supercharger.

3. Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid - 500kW

500kW Proving frugal doesn’t have to be dull, the Panamera flagship uses petrol and electric in unison for huge performance but average fuel consumption of just 2.9 litres per 100km.

4. Ferrari 488 GTB - 492kW

492kW From just 3.9 litres, the Ferrari punches out 126kW per litre. Clever torque-limiting software in the lower gears makes the 488 feel as if it’ll never stop accelerating.

5. BMW M5 Competition - 460kW

460kW With an extra 19kW over the standard M5, the Competition version has BMW’s most powerful road-going V8 ever – enough to deliver 0-100km/h in just 3.3sec.
