The 1/8 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 engine by Marushin is not just another scale model. This one actually works and can do up to 5,500 RPM!
Japanese company Marushin created this tiny masterpiece under license agreement from Porsche AG.
The engine consists of over 500 component parts, plus hundreds of screws. It has a functioning crankshaft, pistons, camshafts, rocker arms and valves.
Exhaust box is made of metal and the air intake cowling is plastic, just like on the original full scale engine.
If you are into scale models, this is something every Porschephile would like to have in their little collection, unfortunately it is not available for sale.
