Scania Chimera Semi Truck Powered by a V8 with Six Turbos

Scania Chimera Semi Truck With Six Turbo V8

Sven-Erik “Svempa” Bergendahl has been building custom Scania semi trucks since 1970. The truck you see here is his latest creation called the Scania Chimera. Every piece on this truck was built around the amazing power plant. The engine is a 16.4 L (1,000 ci) V8 out of a Scania 730 and attached to it is a custom stainless steel exhaust system with six Holset turbochargers. The engine produces 1,460 horsepower but they plan on increasing that to 2,190 horsepower. The transmission is a modified Allison six-speed. Laxå Special Vehicles built the body using a Scania P-cab with R-cab components. At some point in the future Bergendahl wants to build a large boat using a Scania engine. I can only imagine what that would look like.
