Nissan’s Crazy-Powerful New Engine Weighs Just 88 Pounds

 And now Nissan’s managed to build a wee little engine that puts out a stunning 400 horsepower with just three cylinders. And at 88 pounds, you could use it as part of your CrossFit regimen.
The tiny turbocharged engine will propel Nissan’s Batmobilesque ZEOD RC, due to race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans later this year. With a displacement of just 1.5 liters, the lil’ mill has a better power-to-weight ratio than the high-revving V6 engines that power this year’s Formula 1 racers.
Nissan calls it the DIG-T R, and it’s as compact as it is light. The engine is just under 20 inches tall and a little over seven inches wide — small enough to fit in a plane’s overhead bin — before you bolt on the turbo, induction system and exhaust.
