They produce about the same amount of peak power, but the former have a far more favorable tourque band, less weight, smaller dimensions, is more efficent and less costly. So which one is really the most technically advanced?
yeah and a 7.0 litre BMW v10 would blow it away
LS7 also has to be hand built and has a dry sump system much more work and expense than the bmw lump.
also the 6.0 v10 fitted to the new 7 series has 80lb-ft of torque more than the ls7 and is still 1000cc smaller
