1100

The 1100 pumps out 1,100 lb-ft of torque from 2500 to 5250 rpm and delivers 1,100 horsepower at its 6,500 rpm red line. All of this power and torque comes from 89 posted octane (R+M)/2, (95 RON, global) pump gas. Competitive engines with like power ratings require a minimum 91 posted octane. Like the 1350, the 1100 complies with EPA and CARB exhaust gas emissions limits.

  • Drivability

    The long flat torque curve of the engine combined with Digital Throttle and Shift allows the 1100 to rocket you to speed with the smoothness and ease of a high-end luxury vehicle throughout the full RPM range

  • Economical

    The 1100 is designed to perform on 89 octane fuel so you can save money on your fuel bill the next time you fill up the tank

  • Global

    Design and validated to pass US and EU emission standards, the 1100 can be enjoyed throughout the world

  • Warranty

    We’re so confident in our 1100 that we back it with a 1 year warranty, which is unheard of in the high performance marine market

  • Efficient

    The combustion system provides fuel efficiency rewards of 20 to 30% over similarly rated engines
