Mercury Racing Unveils New Engine for the Auto Industry At SEMA 2013.

Written by 

Some big news today at the 50th annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada as Mercury Racing unveils a top secret project their new QC4v crate engine designed for a variety of high performance automotive applications. This new motor is will be available in a large variety of configurations for racing and pleasure use and based off their popular line of marine race engines which are capable of upwards of 1650 hp and used in many of their larger model engines and recently their new 520 Marine engine released earlier this summer. To some this may come as quite a surprise but Mercury Racing founder Carl Kiekhaefer actually raced Nascar for a few years in the late 50’s actually creating some major stepping stones for the sport including one claim to fame being the first Nascar crew to wear Matching uniforms. We think this new engine is a great step forward for Mercury Racing as their engines have become the motor of choice for the high performance boating industry we have a feeling this new crate engine will shock the automotive industry in both performance and craftsmanship.

They currently have an cutaway model of the engine on display at the SEMA show along with DCB M-41 Wide Body powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 1350’s ( ride along video featured earlier this week) for automotive racing fans to get a glimpse of just what type of machines their power plants are currently in. Show runs from Nov 5th-Nov 8th if your in the area be sure to head out and check out this awesome new crate motor along with the gorgeous boat from Daves Custom Boats. Will keep you posted on any future projects to come..
