ABSTRACT
The article discusses the development of the V8 engine of the company Scania AB. Scania launched its new DS14 LBO1V8 engine in the July 1969 powered by an 8-litre or 11-litre engine. It is reported that Scania has built 221,750 trucks equipped with a variety of V8 engines. Haulier, Sandy Kydd said the torque of the V8 makes it a far better pulling engine than the others, and the latest 620 version is probably the best engine ever made.
