Class 1 Competition

Based off of the quad cam four valve (QC4v) engine platform, the 850 h.p. Class 1 Competition pumps out 850 lb-ft of torque from 2500 to 5250 rpm and delivers 850 horsepower at its 6,350 rpm red line. All of this power and torque comes from 89 posted octane (R+M)/2, (95 RON, global) pump gas.

Specifications

The Class 1’s fuel calibration is unique for its application, but it’s function is very similar. It shifts just as sweetly and throttles just as effortlessly as it’s QC4v siblings. It features an integrated, water-cooled twin turbo exhaust system. The digitally modulated boost control is employed to handle the engines’ massive, flat torque line. And, as with all QC4v engines, The Class 1 is drive-by- wire and features an electronically shifted transmission.

The Class 1 is available with the M6 drive with gear ratios from 1.15.1 to 1.42:1 or as an engine only.

With 11 color options available and four different components that can be painted — Induction & Exhaust, Base Engine, Transom, and Drive —owners can mix and match to create literally thousands of different custom color combinations.
